There will be “Comedy Tonight” and every night during this laugh-filled production. Set in ancient Rome and overflowing with delicious songs and gorgeous girls, this musical tells the bawdy story of a slave, Pseudolus, and his attempts to win his freedom by helping his young master woo the girl next door. Chock-full of puns, cases of mistaken identity, and satirical comments on social class, this sly mix of Broadway and Burlesque is guaranteed to bring down the house. Fasten your togas;
Forum is considered one of the funniest musicals ever created. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical.

Director: Anthony Holsten

Welcome to the MAC!

Established in the autumn of 2005, Magnolia Arts Center was founded with the mission of creating a comprehensive arts organization to serve Greenville and the surrounding areas. For over 17 years, Magnolia has delivered a myriad of plays, musicals, and special events. We invite you to explore our upcoming events in our 2024 season.


2nd Magnolia Arts Mackie Awards

The 2nd Magnolia Arts Mackie Awards honoring Outstanding Achievement will be held Friday, March 1 @ 7 p.m. Please join us at John Paul II High School for the festivities. Doors open at 6:30; the program begins at 7 p.m.

Over 30 individuals have been nominated for awards in acting and singing. Last year’s ceremony was well- attended and was great fun. Tickets are $15; however, the actors who are nominated will attend as our guests. Tickets are available online and will be available at the door. MAC is hoping to raise funds to add two more rows of seating in the theater.

We look forward to seeing you at John Paul II High School as we celebrate the outstanding performances by MAC actors.
