Mesa Community College has many music and theater opportunities for you to enjoy while volunteering
Mesa Community College has many music and theater opportunities for you to enjoy while volunteering. The beautiful Performing Arts Center and updated Theater offer many concerts, musicals and plays each semester.
Once you contact Marisa Estrada at the College and sign up to be a volunteer she will then contact you as music or theater events occur. MCC currently uses www.signup.com to let you sign up for events. This program will give you the curtain time for the show, when seating begins and when you will need to be at the venue to volunteer. You can then choose to volunteer for that event if you are willing and able or not.
MCC has multiple venues that they schedule for on the Southern and Dobson campus. This includes The MCC Theatre, the EXP Blackbox Studio (in the MCC Theatre), and the MCC Performing Arts Center. Marisa will occasionally schedule a volunteer at the Rehearsal and Performance Center at MCC Red Mountain.
There are many benefits of volunteering and Marisa hopes that you will join them.
The goal of MCC's performance venues is to provide Safety, Satisfaction and Success!

Students who qualify to participate in Connect 4 Success (C4S) are paired with a mentor who provides one-on-one support for managing the challenges of college.
There are no agendas or set goals; instead, you are encouraged to question, share, and explore ideas with a caring listener. You decide what you want to focus on; your Mentor is there to support you.
