In May 1973, a group of Coachella Valley business, education and cultural leaders organized as Friends of the Cultural Center, Inc., and committed themselves to the creation of a state-of-the-art performing arts center. Their vision was to enhance and enrich the lives of desert residents by making the performing arts available to as many people as possible.
Vision became reality in January 1988, with the opening of McCallum Theatre. Named for a pioneer desert family, the McCallum has gained acclaim as one of the country`s finest presenting theatres by audiences, entertainers and peers alike.
