MUCCC Accessibility


The MuCCC Theater is a multi-use community cultural center (hence the acronym MuCCC) in Rochester, New York. Founded in 2009 by arts entrepreneur Doug Rice, its mission is to provide a theater to performers who do not have a permanent space, to attract new audiences to theater, and to provide theater at a low cost to the public.
