The Lynne Haydn Memorial Fund

Remembering our founder Lynne Haydn.

If there’s one thing Lynne loved, it was the theatre filled with an audience having a wonderful experience. It was her vision and tenacity that allowed the Mac-Haydn to produce 50 years of outstanding theatre right in the heart of Columbia County. Ticket prices alone do not cover all the theatre’s expenses, and it is only with the generous support of friends like you that the theatre is able to grow and flourish.

Please consider making a donation in Lynne’s memory and we will continue to honor her and Linda’s lasting legacy on stage each day.
