Bio: Music City Texas Theater is a project of Linden – Music City, Texas, Incorporated, an autonomous nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization conceived by the Linden Economic Development Corporation in an effort to promote tourism in Linden, Cass County and the surrounding area. The facility itself is a result of the artful renovation of the Linden American Legion Auditorium built in 1948-50 which is now owned by the City of Linden and leased to Linden-MCT, Inc. The renovation has been accomplished mainly by the volunteer work of the MCT Board of Directors and local citizens, with the necessary funds made available by donations from the Linden Lions Club, the Linden EDC, private individuals and a loan to MCT from the EDC revolving loan fund. Celebrating its Grand Opening in May of 2003, the theater is now and will continue presenting an array of quality entertainment, ranging from nationally known artists to regional and local entertainers from all genres of music. The theater is also being made available for rental to other organizations that present entertainment as well as for civic and private functions. Plans for the theater’s activities also include the presentation of “Community Theater” and educational workshops in the fields of music and the arts. Several of the Directors on the MCT Board are professional or amateur musicians from the Linden area. As such, they are uniquely qualified proponents of the best experience possible, not only for the audience, but for the performers as well. Their efforts and attention to detail combined with the Theater’s intimate setting assure a quality experience for patrons and performers alike. Donations from Corporate Sponsors and individual Patronships, as well as revenues from shows provide financial support for the theater. A portion of the proceeds in excess of operating expenses will be allocated to community improvement projects. To get involved, visit our Support The Theater page on our website for details. For acts interested in performing at MCTT, you are encouraged to contact via email. Shows are currently being booked for Saturday nights only. Due to the non-profit nature of our venue, performers are most often contracted on a gate percentage basis.
