Save historic DeWitt Theater from becoming a big box store parking lot

  • By: Save DeWitt Theater Campaign
  • Target: Placer County Board of Supervisors, Gov. Edmund Brown, Sen. Barbara Boxer, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Mayor Bridget Powers

The historic DeWitt Theater located in Auburn, California is slated to be demolished and replaced with a parking lot in a proposed site plan by Costco, Inc.  The footprint of the theater represents roughly 40 overflow parking spaces.

DeWitt Theater (home of Music and More Arts Academy & Music and More Performing and Visual Arts, Inc.) is a ‘critical’ part of the history, culture, music and performing arts, serving the citizens of at least eight counties in Northern California.

Over the last 30+ years, Music and More Arts Academy has taught over 10,000 students, produced over 400 children and community theater plays and musicals, culminating in several thousand performances.

Please help us preserve this critical part of Northern California history, culture and the arts for future generations to come.

The historic DeWitt Theater (home of Music and More Arts Academy & MMPVA) is a 'critical' part of the history, culture, music and performing arts, serving the people of California.


Music and More Performing and Visual Arts (MMPVA) was developed in the year 2000, as a non-profit benefit corporation for public and charitable purposes. The mission of MMPVA, Inc. is to support, encourage and promote quality performing arts programs and performances, which will educate participants, audiences and provide opportunities for community, youth, adults and senior citizens to enjoy quality arts performances.


Over the last 30+ years, Music and More Arts Academy @musicandmore has taught over 10,000 students, produced over 400 children and community theater plays and musicals, culminating in several thousand performances.


Please don't allow this important piece of history and thriving cultural arts center to be destroyed for something as mundane as 40 parking spaces which could easily be relocated to another area.


Please SAVE DeWitt Theater.
