Midland Community Theatre

Midland Community Theatre was founded in 1946 by Art Cole. Each year, Midland Community Theatre hosts their annual fundraiser, Summer MuMmers, the world's longest running melodrama at the historic Yucca Theatre. 

Since 1989, the McLaren Memorial Comedy Playwriting Competition has taken place encouraging playwrights to create new comedy scripts suitable for production in community theatre. Over 2,000 plays have been entered, and every August, finalists from the competition are presented in the Mabee Theatre II as reader theatre productions. 

MCT aims to bring quality theatre arts and education opportunities to Midland and the Permian Basin for the benefit of the audience and volunteers.
