Tobin Theatre Arts Council

The McNay's Tobin Theatre Arts Council connects the museum’s renowned Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts to the world of live theatre in San Antonio and beyond. Group members are “front row, center” for the best in contemporary design for plays, operas, and ballets. Membership in the Tobin Theatre Arts Council is your ticket to behind-the-scenes visits to theatres and designers’ studios, as well as conversing with actors, directors, and choreographers. Collector and McNay benefactor Robert L. B. Tobin had the vision to acquire stage design as art and the theatre group continues his legacy by supporting acquisitions for the McNay’s Tobin Theatre Arts Collection.
