        A visit to Flint’s Cultural Center alone offers many theater experiences such as a live Broadway show or a Flint Symphony Orchestra performance at The Whiting, a stage reading at the Flint Youth Theatre or a talented performance at the Flint Institute of Music by the Flint School of Performing Arts faculty artists. Flint’s New McCree Theatre is committed to presenting live theatre that is both unique and innovative with the mission of Telling the African American story in “the” African American voice. Their new Theatre, located on Cloverlawn, is a 220-seat auditorium with meeting space. Check out the new Tom & Bea Nobles Performance Hall, on Ballenger Highway, where the amazing Flint Community Players perform yearly from September through May. The Fenton Village Players have been performing numerous programs and plays for more than a decade and now call the Fenton Village Playhouse home to most of their shows. Head north to Theater 57, home of Clio Cast and Crew, Inc.
