Pay What You Can
Pay What You Can

From its inception in 1969, the Mac-Haydn has made accessibility to the arts a core focus of our mission. We believe that equity and inclusion start with access. With our highest ticket price at $45.00, we set the cost barrier lower than any other professional musical theater producer in the region.

However, we want to do more to provide access to the experience of live theater, which is why we’re bringing back the PAY WHAT YOU CAN initiative this season! For one night per show, ticket prices don’t exist – you decide what to contribute to attend the performance.

PAY WHAT YOU CAN performances will take place on the first Sunday evening performance for 42nd Street, Footloose, The Sound of Music, Godspell, and Jersey Boys.

West Side Story: Sunday, June 16 at 7pm

Sister Act: Sunday, June 30 at 7pm

Rent: Sunday, July 21 at 7pm

All Shook Up: Sunday, August 4 at 7pm

Something Rotten: Sunday, August 20 at 7pm

The PAY WHAT YOU CAN performance for The Fantasticks will be Friday, September 6 at 7pm.
