You’re Invited!

At Meany Center, we believe that performing arts have the power to bring people together through shared experiences that enrich our cultural understanding, lift our spirits and delight our senses. Our public events and donor events are designed to celebrate this transformative power and strengthen the Meany arts community by connecting our audience and members, not only with the artists we present, but with each other.
