Enlightening Our Community Through the Arts

The Malonga Casquelourd Center for the Arts is a popular multicultural, multidisciplinary performing-arts complex sponsored by the city of Oakland, formerly known as the Alice Arts Center. A beautifully restored turn-of-the-century building,  it’s one of Oakland’s busiest performing arts facilities. Patrons can participate in a variety of arts programs, dance classes or rent spaces for arts events and activities. Spaces available for rent include a 300-seat theater, five dance studios, meeting rooms and rehearsal spaces. Its theater and performance venues showcase music, theatre, ballet, African and contemporary dance, and more. MCCA Theater has been serving the community dating back to the 1920s. It’s provided a safe environment, positive role models, physical & educational activities as well as cultural awareness and enrichment.
