Founded by fashion designer, philanthropist and art collector Tina Knowles Lawson along with her husband actor, director and master acting teacher Richard Lawson. WACO Theater Center is a non profit art, performance and cultural center.

The WACO Theater Center, is dedicated to the empowerment of artists, urban youth and people in general, within a diversified pool of our LA communities and beyond. We encourage artists to find their true purpose and awaken their own individual power source, which fuels their art.  Through the well-crafted vision of our artistic directors, Richard Lawson & Tina Knowles Lawson, hundreds of artists and others will learn to reach tangible goals by applying a systematic road-map that allows them to put their dreams into action, resulting in monetizing their unique talent no matter what their ages are. “Dreams don’t have expiration dates.”

“The meaning of life is to find our gift. The purpose of life is to give it away”. -Pablo Picasso
