The Marietta Center for the Arts (MCA) is the first performing arts center in Marietta, Pennsylvania. Located in historic downtown Marietta, the MCA offers high-caliber stage productions from Susquehanna Stage while expanding the arts within the growing community of Marietta. 

In addition to onstage performances, the primary goal of the Marietta Center for the Arts is to provide a community gathering place and to offer art-centered educational benefits to the community. Year-round classes such as dance, acting, music, crafting, and art are available to kids, teens, and adults of all ages!

The center will also provide a beautiful space to rent for any event you can dream: corporate meetings, rehearsal space, bridal showers, paint & wine nights, social galas, fundraisers, baby showers, and more!

A Susquehanna Stage Production: EVITA

Running July 19 – August 4, 2019

Join us for Susquehanna Stage’s, Grand Summer Theatre production of EVITA – opening July 19th and running for three weekends through August 4th. EVITA also marks the Grand Opening of our brand new main-stage theatre at the Marietta Center for the Arts. EVITA will be held in the new Eater Theater, sponsored by the Eater Family Foundation. Our main-stage has been under renovation since the end of May to include new upgrades such as a larger platform for staging, lighting, sound, and more room for patrons – our seating accommodates up to 156 people. Be the first to experience our new venue and to see this stellar cast!
EVITA is a rock opera based on the life of Argentine political leader Eva Perón, a poor Argentinian girl who grows up to be the wife of Juan Perón, the president of Argentina; and who is worshiped by her people. As a young woman who longs for an acting career, fame, and fortune, Eva quickly learns that her feminine wiles hold power among a culture and a political system run by men. She eventually becomes a hero to the poor and the working class—and an enemy to the rich. Her story is told through the eyes of a young and unknown revolutionary, Ché, who narrates the rise and fall of the beloved matriarch of the Argentinian people.
