Formed in 2004, The Sixth Act provides co-curricular support for the study of drama across disciplines at MCC. To this end, The Sixth Act (1) develops co-curricular events and materials for MCC faculty and students, especially those who might teach or study plays or playwriting, and (2) provides enrichment opportunities to encourage all MCC faculty, students, and staff to see and talk about plays produced at MCC and in the Rochester area. The Sixth Act seeks as its leaders faculty, staff, and students drawn from a variety of academic disciplines and departments. The Sixth Act is supported by MCC's Creative Arts Committee and Liberal Arts Program.

In commemoration of Yom HaShoah, The Sixth Act is collaborating with MCC’s HGHRP to participate in the National Jewish Theater Foundation’s nationwide Remembrance Readings. The Sixth Act will join hundreds of organizations around the country by selecting one short play from the NTJF catalogue of nearly 600 plays, presenting that play as a staged reading on Yom HaShoah, and then inviting audience members into a conversation about the lessons of the Holocaust and the relevance of those lessons in today’s world.
