WVTC is a non profit that inspires its community with an appreciation of all cultures through new works about contemporary social issues

Your support ensures that the arts have a place to thrive for our youth in the Watts & South Los Angeles Community

Did you know…

• Underserved students often cite their participation in the arts as the primary reason for staying in school?

• Students who are exposed to the Arts such as drama or music are better able to master reading, writing and math than those who focus solely on academics?

• Arts programs are the first on the chopping block when budgets are cut?

Help us bring the color and life of THEATER & THE ARTS back to WATTS!

The Department of Cultural Affairs, Los Angeles has given Watts Village Theater Company a matching grant of $7000 if we raise $7000 by 8/27. We can not reach this goal alone.

When you donate to the Watts Village Theater Company you are helping support our thriving and innovative arts and education initiatives.

Please help us reach our goal of raising $15,000 to provide next years 2013 Animo Locke Watts student school production.
