Meany Center for the Performing Arts

With effective vaccines against COVID-19 approved and a mammoth effort to inoculate everyone here in our state over the next several months, Meany Center is planning a return to presenting live performances on our stage for our 2021-22 Season, beginning in October! 

In the meantimewe continue to present this Season’s programming on our new digital platform, Meany On Screen. Though nothing can replace the experience of live performance, one upside to virtual events is the potential to reach many more community members than could possibly fit in our 1230-seat theater. What’s more, our programming remains free of charge through the end of June (though we are asking for a suggested donation from those who can afford it).

Free of charge to our patrons, but not to us — we still have bills to pay, not the least of which are artist fees! With limited revenue to offset expenses, now more than ever, we still need your support to help us:

  • Pay our artists, whose livelihoods are precarious, even in the best of times. Though we are presenting their performances free of charge, we are paying them for their work.
  • Support K-12 students, their families and their teachers by providing free, on-demand digital matinees that will be available through the end of the school year, as well as curriculum guides to accompany each performance.
  • Engage our community by offering access to all feature presentations, artist interviews, and community events free of charge.
  • Serve our patrons by continuing to bring leading artists from around the world to you through unique feature presentations, discussions, interviews, behind-the-scenes events and more.  

With your help, world-class performing arts at Meany Center will be a part of our community and changing lives for generations to come.
