There's much to be thankful for in November!

In November, our side of the globe may be turning colder in preparation for winter, but the creative minds from the Merillat Centre of the Arts are only getting warmed up. Before we plunge into winter, the MCA welcomes you to wrap up this autumn enjoying a variety of musical, theatre, and visual arts.

Consider this your invitation to join us! All of these events are free and open to the public:
