Our Present

MelOur membership has grown to well over four hundred individuals, representing over forty area towns and every state in New England.

MMAS currently operates the Black Box Theater, which produces both book shows and original works for the general public. We strive to provide new writers a platform to workshop and present their plays to the public as well as give opportunities to area actors, directors and musicians to develop their craft in quality theatrical productions. Over 100 different actors have appeared on our stage in the past season, coming from towns and cities all over Southeastern Massachusetts.

We produce between eight and ten professional caliber shows each season in our 60-seat theater, host the annual Southeastern Mass Arts Festival on the South Common in downtown Mansfield, and offer summer and after-school educational programs for children and classes for teens, adults and seniors.
