Cultural Arts

As a beacon for the arts in Chicago’s western suburbs, the McAninch Arts Center is proud to provide guests quality music, dance, theatre, comedy, family entertainment, and youth/student performances. Every season the MAC must bridge the gap between box office revenues and the true cost of operating. It is with the help and generosity from friends like you that the MAC is able to continue to make everything they do possible.
