The Marion Art Center Presents Native Gardens

The MAC Theater will present its first play of the 2021 season, “Native Gardens,” written by Karen Zacarías and directed by Kate Fishman. The cast includes Gary Sousa as Pablo, Mia Vaughn as Tania, Suzie Kokkins as Virginia, and Donn Tyler as Frank. The MAC’s sound and lighting technician is Steve McManus.

            Director Kate Fishman is seeking extras to fill four nonspeaking roles for this production. To find out more, please email with “Extra for Native Gardens” in the subject line. If you’ve always wanted to get involved with theater but don’t have experience, this is a great way to give acting at try!

            Synopsis: Pablo, a high-powered lawyer, and doctoral candidate Tania, his very pregnant wife, are realizing the American dream when they purchase a house next door to Washington, D.C. stalwarts Virginia and Frank. But a disagreement over a long-standing fence line soon spirals into an all-out war of class, privilege, and entitlement. The hilarious results guarantee no one comes out smelling like a rose.

            This is the MAC’s second outdoor live theater event that will take place in Bicentennial Park across the street from the MAC on Main Street in Marion. Six show dates are scheduled June 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, and 20. Friday and Saturday productions will begin at 6:00 pm, while Sunday matinees will begin at 2:00 pm.
