THE WOODLAND HILLS COMMUNITY THEATER is one of the local gems of the West Valley. The group started in a church in 1986 and moved to its current home, The West Valley Playhouse in the old Fire Station on Owensmouth Ave in Canoga Park in October of 2000. The building is an attraction in itself. Loaded with nostalgia it harkens back to another era before mega movie complexes and satelite TV. There is an attached museum featuring many articles and pictures of bygone times in the local area. The theater interior is small allowing for close interaction with the actors and engages one in the performance. The Woodland Hills Community Theater is rated one of the top Community Theaters in the country and provides a much needed venue in the West Valley for those of us who appreciate live theater. The West Valley Playhouse is located at 7242 Owensmouth Ave, just north of Sherman Way between Canoga Ave and Topanga Canyon Blvd. Adult tickets range between $25.00 and $30.00 depending on the performance and they accept most major credit cards. The ticket office can be reached at 818-884-1907. We are lucky to have this wonderful cultural asset in the West Valley. Please give them your support.
