The Courtyard Theater is a 321-seat proscenium-style theater. With a large stage and spacious lobby, the venue is perfect for any event. Receptions, recitals, stage plays, musicals, concerts, meetings, and private parties are all common occurrences in this beautiful venue.
The Courtyard Theater was originally the gymnasium for Plano’s Cox High School. Constructed as a 1938 Works Progress Administration project, the Cox Gymnasium is a significant building in Plano’s history and exemplifies the cultural and social heritage of Plano. The City Council approved a $4.6 million restoration of the Cox Gymnasium in 1999. Preserving the historic materials and style of the existing building with modern functionality and interior accents of color, form and material were priorities. The venue is a state-of-the-art facility with a historical perspective and an intimacy which lends itself to a close connection with the audience.
