TheatreMcLean’s mission is to provide students and the community with active, challenging, fun, and varied theatrical experiences designed to entertain and enlighten.  We provide a venue for learning both on stage and backstage — safe spaces where students can evolve as a community of artists striving together in their artistic endeavors.
