Public Engagement & Education

Let’s break it down together.

Driven by our mission to provoke conversations, we are committed to using the power of theater to ask some of the essential questions of our times. 

Our PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT programs invite audiences to delve deeper into our onstage work as well as build bridges across our community artistically and geographically. Connect with us and each other. 


Our EDUCATION programs break down barriers to embolden students and young audiences to deepen their CURIOSITY and find confidence in THEIR VOICES; helping to build the next generation of theater makers and lovers. 


BRING YOUR GROUP TO MCC – Our shows provoke conversations on our stages that can be continued in the classroom. Whether touching on social topics or aspects that are the core of our collective humanity, coming to see a show at MCC is a great compliment to your curriculum and arts education experience. We provide a show guide to prepare students for their visit with suggested prompts to jump start the discussion before and after the show. LEARN MORE

“MCC has opened up so many doors for me to grow. Being part of MCC Youth Company helped me lose my serious exterior and release parts of my personality I was so afraid to show. Being part of MCC has been a blessing because they are constantly helping me develop and they have given me the support every teen needs.”

Audience members of all generations have emboldened our work with VIBRANT DISCUSSIONS, debates, and reflections that spill out of the theater and fill the streets and continue to reverberate throughout New York City and beyond.

“MCC was born out of an impulse by a group of artists to CHALLENGE and LEARN from one another. The tenets of COLLABORATION and COMMUNITY were central to our work then and remain at the heart of everything we do today.”

-Will Cantler, Co-Artistic Director
