What a great, easy experience. No parking issues. No lines getting in. Everyone can see the performers. Wonderfully small crowd. Hope they bring in some fun entertainers. This place is a hidden gem!

Wow don’t let the old timey historic charm fool you. This downtown Mckinney performing art center features some serious talent!!!! We saw Martin Lucas and were blown away. There are some world class musicians playing here. We have never seen a bad performance. The atmosphere offers a great expression hometown pride clearly displayed by the many volunteers.

We stopped to see the building and look around. We found out that nothing was happening until the weekend.

Hi Friend! Thank you for leaving a review and most importantly, for stopping by MPAC. You are correct in saying that the majority of our entertainment offerings are happening on weekends, but we're always busy with something, even during the week. Did you know that McKinney Performing Arts Center is a community performing arts center? Our historic facility (open 364 days (closed for Christmas)) hosts other activities besides theatrical performances like dance classes, faith-based worship, corporate meetings, yoga, and baby showers just to name a few. Unlike other performing art centers around the metroplex, MPAC is a "community" performing arts center smackdab in the heart of Historic Downtown McKinney. We're dedicated to providing opportunities that cultivate curiosity and encourage discovery. As a result, we have succeeded in making a difference within the community through arts, education, and culture. By incorporating the talents and passion of our friends and neighbors, MPAC is more than just a performing arts venue; it is a place that symbolizes the heartbeat of an invested community. We hope you stop by again in the near future to explore all that we have to offer. Or feel free to check out our website for more information: visitmpac.com Best regards!

My boyfriend and I went to the MPAC annual Melodrama, this year is was The Man in the Locket. Booing, hissing, awwing, oohing and throwing popped corn is all expected. The actors did a great job and we thoroughly enjoyed the performance. What a cool, old-fashioned venue for a night full of laughter.

Fantastic old court house in a fantastic old town. Really enjoyed the building and the theater. The old and new (new being the modern safety updates), blend together and the building feels very old and very safe. The theater is really great in atmosphere and the large organ adds to the old "feel". Very nice way to end a long HOT summer day in McKinney.
