Woodlawn Theatre

The Woodlawn Theatre is a vibrant community theatre located at 1920 Fredericksburg Rd, at the heart of San Antonio’s Deco District.

Recent productions at The Woodlawn Theatre include Broadway and musical theatre favorites, “Miss Saigon”, “Jesus Christ, Superstar”, “Annie”, Fame”, Disney‘s “Beauty and the Beast“, “Sweeney Todd:”, “Hairspray”, “Peter Pan”, “The Wiz” and the cult classic, “Rocky Horror Show Live!”

This historic theatre originally opened in 1946 and was where John Wayne hosted the premiere of his classic film, “The Alamo” which was Wayne’s directorial debut.

Over the years the Woodlawn Theatre has been a movie theatre, a night club, and even a place of worship. The theatre was vacant for many years but was renovated and brought back to glory as an iconic landmark and vibrant part of the community by  Jonathan Pennington and Kurt and Sherri Wehner.

Kurt Wehner designs and constructs the phenomenal sets that together with the painting talents of scenic artist, Chris Rutz, transform The Woodlawn Theatre stage for each production.

In addition to Broadway Musical Main Stage Productions, The Woodlawn Theatre also has Youth Musical Theatre Workshops for students to learn acting and singing techniques, stage movement and dance, theatre terms and build self-esteem.
