Woodlawn Theatre's Winnng Video Submission for Impact San Antonio Grant, October 2020

(Video presentation by Woodlawn Theatre, San Antonio)


Woodlawn Theatre is thrilled to be a High Impact Grantee in the Arts and Culture Focus Area from Impact SA. We wish to thank Impact SA for recognizing our organization along with so many other great San Antonio nonprofits. 

Due to COVID19, these past seven months have been trying for everyone. Although we are unable to offer big scale musical productions currently, we are doing everything in our power to develop new programming that allows us to gradually and safely bring our community back to Woodlawn Theatre with new protocols in place.

As we move forward with a tiered re-entry plan, we want to let our patrons know that our main focus right now is making sure we keep our doors open while maintaining our staff. During this break we have evaluated how we serve our community and how we can improve moving forward. We are thoroughly dedicated to maintaining our commitment to youth arts education, diverse programming that appeals to every walk of life in San Antonio, and paying artists for their services. The money granted from Impact SA will be utilized to continue Woodlawn Theatre's artistic programming through 2021. 

Our organization has had to make some tough decisions but we are still fighting the good fight thanks to the generosity of our patrons. Your donations and constant support has been a ray of light during these dark times. We sincerely thank you.

- Christopher Rodriguez, Woodlawn Theatre Executive/Artistic Director
