Who We Are

Magnolia Arts Center (MAC) was founded in the fall of 2005, with the dream of creating a comprehensive arts organization for the Greenville area.  Within a year and a half of its creation, Magnolia provided the community with a variety of new and unique artistic offerings and continues to do so.  Less than 10 years after its creation, Magnolia Arts Center moved into its home in the Perkins Complex in 2014.  MAC continues to believe in the power of the arts to create community.

Our mission is to educate, entertain, and enrich our community by producing quality theater and performing arts programs that are diverse and inclusive.
