Local music fans are finding their way to McCall Plaza in Downtown Plano, and our own Plano Stages has been hard at work creating several unique, toe-tapping events now through the fall season.
Since it opened as an outdoor performance venue in April 2016, McCall Plaza has hosted numerous concerts and events, from swing dance lessons and festivals to dance troupes and emerging local musicians. Speaking of variety, children of the `90s were surprised to hear we will host Tone Loc and Arrested Development on Sept. 16. So dig up your Doc Martens and meet us there for a night of nineties nostalgia! Tickets are just $15 and the concert starts at 7:30 p.m.
The addition of McCall Plaza as a concert venue has made a positive impact on the downtown area, as visitors enjoy the open-air stage in the heart of the Plano’s arts district. The plaza is strengthening the area by giving an opportunity and outlet for local acts to get exposure, said Michelle Hawkins, arts, culture and heritage manager for Plano Parks and Recreation.
“McCall is becoming a popular venue because of the diversity it fosters and its convenient location. Its size is ideal for just about any kind of performance and it is surrounded by everything downtown has to offer,” Hawkins said. “Each year we hope to bring more and more different forms of entertainment to appeal to everyone.”
Plano Stages’ Live & Local Concert Series is still going strong with concerts scheduled through August. These free concerts take place the third weekend of each month on Friday and Saturday at 8:30 p.m. Our free dance lessons also continue, with the next ones set for on Aug. 30, Oct. 4 and Nov. 1. Dance style is TBD—so if you have suggestions, share them with us at www.planostages.com.
Thank you for supporting the arts in Plano!
