The Woodlawn Theater opened in 1946, and has been an integral part of the city’s cultural history since. It premiered John Wayne’s The Alamo (hosted by the director/lead actor himself) and the first of Pink Floyd’s lazer light show.
In the past several decades the Woodlawn has featured the full spectrum of the performing arts, and its schedule today remains as diverse, featuring plays, concerts, talent shows, pageants and more. Musical theater (including Broadway and off-Broadway productions) makes up the bulk of the Woodlawn’s schedule; the venue has featured many of the most popular plays of the past decade. In addition to live performances, the Woodlawn offers Youth Musical Theater workshops, where students develop singing and acting skills, learning stage movement, dance, and all of the technical aspects needed to bring a production to life.
