When it comes to bringing a lesson alive, the MAC is the place to be.
We’ve welcomed over 15,000 school children to the MAC and counting, and throughout the year we offer lots of creative learning opportunities for students of all ages. Your class can experience a live theatre show, enjoy world-class art exhibitions, take a tour backstage or enjoy a customised creative workshop led by a professional artist.
Christmas 2018 - The Elves and the Shoemaker
The MAC is excited to announce that our festive show for 2018 is the magical fairy tale - The Elves and the Shoemaker.
Produced by the MAC, and written by Stephen Beggs and Simon Magill, this Christmas show tells the classic tale of a shoemaker who receives some help from a bunch of cheeky, friendly elves - with of course a modern MAC twist.
Don’t delay in booking your school trip to the theatre this Christmas. We have one of the best-priced school tickets at just £8 per pupil - and for every 10 bought, you'll get an 11th ticket free.
