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!
