What's Happening ...
Help us win again!
Last year you helped MHT win the title of "Best Live Theatre" in Columbia County. The Chamber of Commerce contest is on again and you can help us retain the title: just go to
columbiachamber-ny.com/vote-for-the-best-of-columbia-county and cast your vote. You can only vote once, and must vote in 10 or more categories to have your ballot counted.

BUSINESS OWNERS - DID YOU KNOW WE ATTRACT PEOPLE FROM MILES AROUND?
Our audience comes from not only here in Columbia County, but also in the Capital District, Berkshires, Catskills and beyond. If you have a business in any of those areas, an ad in our program will reach your customers. We're putting the program together now, so if you'd like to help both Mac-Haydn and your own business, send us an email at email@example.com and we'll have someone contact you.
Reminder: if you suddenly are not getting our Facebook posts, it’s because one page has been deleted (it’s a long Facebook story) – go to https://www.facebook.com/pages/Mac-Haydn-Theatre/141267069242856 to like us and get all the latest news.
Online ticket orders will be mailed in April.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR OUR AUDITIONS
ADULT CHATHAM AUDITIONS: One song and a short comedic monologue, shoes/clothes to do a short movement/dance call.
CHILDREN CHATHAM AUDITIONS: One song.
Song: pick a song that best shows off your voice, it can be a ballad or up-tempo but be aware that we are often overwhelmed with ballads.
16 bars: pick those that show off the best part of your voice.
Short comedic monologue: 1 minute or less, something funny or light rather than something overly dramatic, with dead puppies or people, a lot of f-bombs, or dreary subjects in general.
Shoes/clothes to dance/move in: we realize that some singers are not dancers, we just want to see your 'sense of rhythm', and to be able to see dancers to have them come to a dance call at another time.
