Join us for live music, entertainment and the honoring of Clifton Johnson and Rosie Lee Hooks, our “Community Towers,” pillars in our community who, like WVTC, are making a substantial difference in South LA and around the world.


Since 1996, WVTC has been a leader in providing acting and theatrical performance workshops for at-risk youth in Watts and South Los Angeles.  We infuse our culturally diverse community with a tolerance for differences through the development and production of thought-provoking works such as "Meet Me @Metro," a site-specific extravaganza performed on and around the Los Angeles Metro transit system.


In a community constantly struggling with poverty and adversity, WVTC inspires and provides positive alternatives to the status quo.  With your support, we can continue to bring the community together!


For more information, please click on "Contact the Host" on the right side of this page and send us a message, and we will get back to you ASAP.

 

Thank you for your support and see you at CAAM on May 16!
