Brauntex Adds More Shows, More Reasons To Stay Downtown, For 2018-2019 Season By: Ralph Gill, New Braunfels Downtown Association
August 14, 2018
“As New Braunfels grows, so does the Brauntex Theatre which means more of a variety of what is offered to patrons.” says Cheryl Fisher, executive director at the Brauntex Performing Arts Theatre. The charming 75 year old “jewel of downtown” has added more shows than in previous years, about 26, and Fisher continued, “we plan on adding a few more before the end of the year.”
The season starts off on October 12 with the renowned Grammy Award‐winning saxophonist and Tony Award nominee, Branford Marsalis, one of the most revered instrumentalists of his time. Many will remember him as the former leader of the Tonight Show Band. He is currently the leader of The Branford Marsalis Quartet, one of the most innovative and forward‐thinking jazz ensembles around today. This show will be a unique treat for New Braunfels, as will the whole season’s line up. A full listing of all the 2018-2019 Brauntex entertainment calendar can be found at www.brauntex.org.
The Brauntex continues to fulfilled its simple but important mission, “to provide excellent cultural and entertainment experiences,” for the entire Hill Country and Central Texas. “With the Brauntex Theatre being in downtown New Braunfels and the revitalization of the Theatre which began 19 years ago, it’s been an ongoing process to update various aspects of the Theatre,” said Fisher. “We are about to undertake a complete renovation to the Brauntex Theatre parking lot, located behind the building. After that, we will begin a serious effort to address badly needed technical upgrades and improvements to create future opportunities to the Theatre which are currently not available to us.”
