Mid - Michigan's Most Exciting Theatre
About The History of McCree Theatre
The History of McCree Theatre is, indeed, chronicled in chapters. The “Old” McCree Theatre grew out of the old Model Cities era and relied totally upon entitlements for sustenance. The “old” reigned from inception in 1970 to 1989, when it went into an extended hiatus. The era of the “New” McCree Theatre began in 2004 with a new African centered philosophy and a renewed commitment to excellence. The theatre is relocated in a 400-seat auditorium in The New Standard Academy building (formerly Powers Catholic High School) with plenty of lighted, off-street parking. Our vision is to transform this space into one the entire community can be proud of, and into one that becomes this region’s pre-eminent entertainment destination.
McCree Theatre’s mission: Telling the African American story in "the" African American voice.
