Fixin' the Morgan-Wixson - Part Deux
Our beloved Morgan-Wixson Theatre on Pico Boulevard was completed in 1966. As happens when the years pass, it is showing its age. We try and keep our repair bills to a minimum, but with recent major plumbing repairs, the need for roof repairs, rain damage to the booth, other minor needs that have popped up, and trying to recover from the pandemic, we need help.

We're reaching out to our fans and theatre family to ask that you help us with our goal of Fixin' the Morgan- Wixson. All amounts are welcomed and appreciated.
Theater Workshops
Youth Theater Workshops

The Morgan-Wixson Theatre and the Youth Education / Entertainment Series (Y.E.S) have been working with youth actors and delighting audiences throughout the Los Angeles area for over 25 years. Our newly launched educational program has been offering workshops in vocals, acting, dance, and audition preparation for the past year, first on Zoom and now in person using all Covid safety protocols. A highly skilled team has designed curriculum for all levels of experience from the novice to the advanced.

Our goal is to include everyone who wishes to take these workshops! We never turn away any student because they cannot pay full tuition. Students do not need to apply for a scholarship or to provide any family financial information.

We are able to do this because of the generosity of our Morgan-Wixson community. If you could donate any amount in addition to the tuition for your student, we will provide you with a donation letter for your tax return and we will be so grateful.
