Mayo Performing Arts Center is back and expecting to present events at full capacity this fall, as it announces its 21-22 season schedule.

Tickets for events go on sale Friday, June 4 at 10 am at www.MayoArts.Org

Next season includes newly booked events, and carryovers from this past season that needed to be rescheduled.

MPAC’s season officially kicks off on Friday, September 17 with a performance by Broadway and cabaret favorite Linda Eder.

Other artists scheduled to perform include Michael Bolton, Audra McDonald, Richard Marx, Sara Evans, Collective Soul and Paul Anka, as well as touring Broadway productions of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, Rent, Fiddler on the Roof and Rodgers and Hammersteins’s South Pacific, and a hologram show of rock and roll legends Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly.

MPAC has been successfully staging events in the theatre at a socially distanced capacity of 150 since last September, hosting over 40 concerts, comedy shows and dance events.

MPAC has invested in the safety and well-being of its patrons, employees and community by partnering with Atlantic Health System. As a 2021 participant of the Atlantic Health System COVID SAFETY CHECK program, MPAC has taken appropriate preventive measures to implement safe infection prevention protocols. MPAC facility upgrades include improved ventilation, including the use of a fresh air circulated system in the auditorium and UV filters elsewhere in the building, touchless fixtures, plexiglas shields, hand sanitizers throughout the building and enhanced cleaning procedures. MPAC will adjust safety protocols based on government regulations over the summer.

As the touring industry ramps up, MPAC expects many events to be added to the schedule. While there may still be a few bumps in the road as normal activity resumes, MPAC is making it easy for patrons to purchase with confidence with flexible ticketing policies.
