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.
