2014-2015 Season

Don't miss this upcoming fall event!

Friday, November 21

Unsorted

7:00 pm at Centene Center, Farmington

Tickets are $5 per adult, $2 per student and are available
at the Farmington Civic Center, #2 Black Knight Drive, Farmington,
or charge by phone (573) 756-0900. All seats are reserved.

Clothes are the characters in a playful world where everyone
must be sorted, according to the bully-boss known as ‘Jacket.’
Separate and divided? No way! These mixety characters want to
hang out with each other. Distinctly separate categories make
no more sense to the clothes than they do in our world.


But Jacket is in charge. The sorting must be done…or else!

Audiences will have fun watching this lively story tangle,
unravel and re-weave toward hopeful possibility. After the play,
themes of personal identity, belonging, acceptance, and self-worth
offer rich opportunities for thoughtful discussion about the ways
we sort ourselves and each other, the dangers of labeling
and exclusion, and the right all of us have to claim who we are.

Metro Theater Company has put together a great toolkit
to accompany the play. To check it out, click here.

Mineral Area Council on the Arts

Story

Mineral Area Council on the Arts (MACOA) is an organization
of volunteers dedicated to providing quality professional arts programming
to local venues at an affordable price. The MACOA office is located
on the campus of Mineral Area College. The Council is a not-for-profit organization governed by a board representing several area communities.

Founded in the 1980s by a steering committee developed by
former Mineral Area College President Dr. Dixie Kohn, MACOA presents
an annual performance series which includes a variety of artistic genres. 
Past performances have included the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra,
a classic film festival, Shakespeare in the Parkland,
the Fabulous Motown Revue, French Creole fiddler Dennis Stroughmatt,

Celebrate Local Authors, and a variety of lectures, exhibits,
concerts and plays featuring national and local artists and performers.

MACOA awards an annual Fine Arts scholarship to a Mineral Area College student. Applications are available in the Mineral Area College Financial
Aid Office. The Council also hosts the popular K-12 Student Art Show,
with 1378 pieces of local student artwork exhibited in 2014,
