Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts
The Wallis brings dance, theatre, music and family programs to an ever-expanding audience, performed by many of the world’s most talented and sought-after artists. Featuring eclectic programming that mirrors the diverse landscape of Los Angeles, The Wallis aims to create, present and celebrate unique performing arts events and educational programs that reflect the rich cultural diversity of our community.
The building features the restored, original 1933 Beverly Hills Post Office (on the National Register of Historic Places) and houses two theaters, as well as GRoW at The Wallis: A Space for Arts Education; together, these structures embrace the city’s history and its future, creating a performing arts destination for L.A.-area visitors and residents alike.
The Wallis invests in the development of young artists through in-depth courses, including collaborations with organizations such as The Miracle Project, which provides theater programs for young people with autism and their typical peers; and Broadway Dreams, a summer intensive program with professional Broadway performers.
On Sunday Fundays, dancers and families of all ages can enjoy free, outdoor dance lessons with three-time Emmy Award-winner Debbie Allen and Friends, along with musical performances by Parker Bent (November 10, March 8 and June 14) and kid-friendly sketch comedy from the Story Pirates (October 13, December 8 and May 10).
