The NSW government brought to Taree MEC the annual Senior Citizens Christmas concert. Playing to a full theater the performance was a wonderful experience. The singing was beautiful and the accompanist on piano was outstanding.

Over the years I have attended many and varied performances at the MEC. Thanks to volunteers for their hard work. Musicals of the standard of the city productions or better. Support local talent. Everything from schools, community to visiting productions. Well done everyone!

A great entertainment centre. Supervised by volunteers. Seating layout is great. The worst seats in the house are better than the average in many venues. Very comfortable seats. Good lighting & sound with fly tower. Reasonable prices.
