The Hearts in the Arts Gala is a celebration of creativity, talent and an educational journey. This year, MCC students will enchant you with their bewitching performance of Into the Woods, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. The epic fairy tale promises to captivate and charm all attendees with its humorous twists. 

The production, directed by Kelly Parker and choreographed by Joe Taylor, will feature elaborate costuming and sets to immerse the audience in this whimsical fairytale. Honorary Hearts in the Arts Chairs Drs. Diane and Clay Sawyer will host the evening.

Hearts in the Arts is an affinity group of the MCC Foundation that supports the arts at MCC. All proceeds from the Gala event benefit MCC scholarships and special projects, which in turn benefits advancing visual and performing arts students and faculty.
