Join us for live music, entertainment and the honoring of Clifton Johnson and Rosie Lee Hooks! Our “Community Towers” are 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!
