AboutThe Foundation.

The Miracle Theater Foundation believes in the transformational power of artistic expression. Art brings people together, encourages empathy, and creates meaningful connections that foster a more fulfilling, compassionate world.
When local creators are uplifted, they enrich their communities in powerful, influential ways. Our goal is to inspire community connection and strengthen economic growth in the creative arts throughout the city of Inglewood and Greater Los Angeles.
We know that art facilitates change, especially when it is experiential. As we carry out our mission to fund enriching cultural events, we envision a future where neighbors share a mutual respect, thoughtful discussions inspire social change, while schools and businesses thrive.

Mariana Weber Smith and Owen Smith share a deep connection to the world of arts, music and entertainment. Mariana became fascinated with theater after experiencing opera as a young girl. She is grateful to her parents for introducing her to “Mozarteum Joven”, a youth organization committed to providing access to classical music. After obtaining a Bachelors in Visual Arts, Mariana pursued a career as a character makeup artist for opera and ballet at the world renowned Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She has always loved the collaborative process to accomplish a shared vision on the stage.Owen's parents owned the only independent bookstore in St. Augustine, Florida which helped cultivate his entrepreneurial spirit and appreciation for storytelling. From working at a start-up digital marketing and content creation company in the early 2000s to playing a leadership role in technical production for 12 seasons on “American Idol”, Owen has participated in several leading trends over the course of his 25 year career in the entertainment industry.Today, as the proud co-owners and co-operators of The Miracle Theater, Mariana and Owen have combined their experiences in arts, culture and the entertainment industry with their shared love and appreciation for creative expression to build a home for cultural events in historic downtown Inglewood.
