Christmas 2019 - A Christmas Carol

The MAC is excited to announce that our festive show for 2018 is the magical fairy tale A Christmas Carol

Produced by the MAC, we’ll be visiting Christmases past, conjuring up Christmas yet to come and seeing if our friend Scrooge can learn from previous mistakes.

There'll be lots of fun along the way. Expect toe-tapping tunes, laugh-out-loud capers and of course the special, memorable experience you’ve come to expect from the MAC Christmas shows.

Suitable for all ages, don’t delay in booking your school trip to the theatre this Christmas - simply email Sarah at the MAC.

 

Space of Space 

This Autumn, award-winning children’s theatre company Cahoots NI and the MAC present an out of this world new show packed full of magic and illusion, Secrets of Space.

Suni and Mae are dreamers. As young girls they dreamt about journeying far beyond our solar system, singing among the stars and discovering all that was unknown to them: The Secrets of Space.

Join our space sisters on an interactive journey across the galaxy, exploring with dazzling imagery the wonders of the cosmos, whilst finding out the scientific secrets and technological truths of the universe.

Secrets of Space has been developed with leading space industry experts and features curriculum connections for primary school audiences in STEAM learning.

Suitable for all ages, but kids age 7+ will get the biggest kicks.

To book tickets, just email Sarah at the MAC.
