"It's not about the Show!" is our motto! We want our students to learn important life skills through the process of rehearsal and performance such as integrity, discipline, creativity, communication skills, "being present," and social skills.
McKinney Youth Theatre is dedicated to developing the character of youth through quality performing arts education and family entertainment. Our vision is to make the arts available to all children through competitive pricing, free workshops, scholarships, and free programming. Founded by Sara Egelston Akers, McKinney Youth Theatre is part of North Texas Performing Arts which has been serving the North Texas area since 1991. MYT began in 2005 and rehearses and performs at First United Methodist Church McKinney.
