The Jonathan Williams Center for the Performing Arts (JWCPA) was incorporated in December 2016 and the board was organized and met in January 2017.  We bring a wealth of knowledge with over 80 years combined experience in music education in the public and private sectors. Although this is our second year as a nonprofit 501c3 organization, we are not new to the performing arts scene in Beaumont and Houston areas.  I promised my students over 16 years ago that we would have a performing arts center.  It took some time to formally organize because of responsibilities in the classroom.  But after retirement in June of 2016, this felt like the right time!  Now I can dedicate my time to developing an organization the Beaumont community will be proud to call their own.

Job well done

An Artist's Dream

I wanted to perform with JWCPA because I know Mr. Williams knows how to produce a show. As expected the accommodations were lovely, the welcome wagon was more like a welcome army tank of goodies, and there performance supplies covering every mishap and request that could possibly be imagined. JWCPA is a company that prizes both artistic excellence and its people, a tight rope balancing act that they've more than perfected. I've had the opportunity to perform for JWCPA several times now and every occasion has been a lovely experience. They make the job of performing a pleasure. Sold out houses, sincere audiences, and savvy theatre makers that ensuring the whole machine run smoothly, it's an artist's dream. Thank you for letting me join in the fun.

Awesome Performance

JWCPA’s dinner theater, presentation of Lion by Crystal Rae was another one of many ‘good clean fun’ plays brought to us. The one woman play was genius and Ms Rae gave us a stellar performance. Looking forward to many more. Thanks Mr Williams for giving our local community a class act. 🤗

My wife and I attended Lions and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We’ll most definitely continue to support JWCPA and also encourage other to do the same. We’re looking forward to attending “The Gospel According to Scrooge”
