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. The same philosophy lead to the founding of McKinney Youth Theatre in 2005 and Frisco Youth Theatre in 2012.
Plano Children’s Theatre is dedicated to developing the character of youth through quality performing arts education and family entertainment.
Where participation and enjoyment of the arts experience is available and desired by all.
I had no idea how many emotions this whole experience was going to evoke in our whole family! This was our first show and we are hooked! The parents, kids, director, all volunteers, set, costumes, PYT etc all exceeded our expectations! We are looking forward to many wonderful years ahead of us with NTPA!
6 1/2 years ago, we were looking for a place to have Kennedy's birthday party. One of my parents suggested PCT. That suggestion not only changed my daughter's life, but also mine. I am so incredibly blessed by the amazing friendships of my theatre mamas. The support is constant, the fun and laughter never ending. Yes, one birthday party can change your life!
