Founded in 1991 by Sara Akers, Plano Children’s Theatre exists to help children ages 5 to 18 find out who they are. For more than 19 years, the theatre has been a place where kids could be the star and a place where they could gain an appreciation and love for live theatre. In 2005, McKinney Youth Theatre was founded with the same philosophy.
While both theatres have a reputation for putting on high-quality productions, they are more proud of a reputation where absolutely everyone gets to play. Everyone has a chance to get involved.
Both locations create opportunities for North Texas families to be a part of a performing arts club that fosters life-long learning, creativity, communication skills, personal discipline, integrity and good citizenship.
