School Entertainment Program

Comprising of a range of genres such as drama, dance, children’s theatre, physical theatre and the like, performances in the MECC School Entertainment Program are chosen not only for their appeal, but also for their ability to provide capital city experiences in a regional city such as Mackay.

Leading Australian companies such as Bell Shakespeare, Queensland Ballet and shake & stir theatre co are brought to Mackay by the MECC to ensure residents of the Mackay region and surrounds access quality programs at affordable prices, in the same manner as their capital city counterparts.

Each year the MECC contacts educators throughout the region advising of performances coming to the centre, which have significant educational merit or which enhance aspects of the school curriculum through workshops.

Funding is available for schools to access the theatre through the Pathways to Performance Program.

If you have any enquiries about upcoming shows or want to make a booking for a show, please contact the MECC Box Office on 4961 9777 or
