To promote the Fine Arts by encouraging community support via dramatic presentations, education, and providing programs that engender the cultural profile of the community.
Lake Whitney Arts was founded in 2004 by people with a dream of building a place where the arts could flourish. A group of local citizens came together in support of the idea that the community could benefit from additional outlets that would encourage the area's wide range of artistic talent. The group envisioned a venue that would showcase actors, artists, sculptors, and others who contribute to that category known as "Fine Arts".
We started with a melodrama DOGSBREATH DEVEREAUX, and began rehearsing in the Prairie Valley Baptist Church Fellowship Hall. After performing our first shows at the Whitney ISD Auditorium, we were able to buy our own place. Through donations, ticket sales, and fundraisers we have built a wonderful space for our art.
We have big dreams for our future. Please see our "Future Plans" page for more information.
We’ve come a long way from our humble beginnings. Lake Whitney Arts (LWA) has since purchased its own theatre building, produced numerous plays and musicals, created a Children's Theatre Division, sponsored and juried art shows; and provided classroom instruction for those interested in the various aspects of art and theatrical production. With creativity, dedication, and good old-fashioned hard work from all our wonderful volunteers, and donations from our fans, we believe anything is possible.
Our future vision includes a full-scale performance and visual arts complex that will house a new stage, arts' gallery, educational classrooms, additional rehearsal space, concessions area and administrative offices.
