Woodward Arts Theatre & Josie Adams Cultural Center
Downtown Woodward features one of Oklahoma’s premiere performing arts centers. Once a movie theater, the Woodward Arts Theatre now hosts community plays as well as arts camps and special performers brought in from around the globe.
The building was purchased 25 years ago, and turned into a performance based theater. The theater is operated by the Woodward Arts and Theatre Council, whose mission is to provide a variety of cultural experiences to the area. In addition to a summer arts camp, productions are staged each year by the Woodward Lite Opera, On Stage Woodward and the Missoula Children’s Theater.
Next door is the Josie Adams Cultural Center, a popular event venue throughout the year. The two story facility was purchased by the Woodward Arts & Theatre Council in 1991. After substantial renovation and modifications, the facility was opened for public use as a home for receptions, art displays, art camps and other social and culturally related activities.
