The Brauntex Performing Arts Theatre will continually provide excellent cultural and entertainment experiences.

About Us:

For nearly two decades, the Brauntex Performing Arts Theatre has brought culture and the arts to the Hill Country region. Year after year, we strive to raise the bar on entertaining the public with diverse programming and artistic opportunities.

Many arts organizations in the area call the Brauntex Theatre “home” as they present their programs, recitals, musicals and concerts for all ages. This is one of the many ways in which the Brauntex Theatre’s mission is met.

As the Association celebrates their 17 year mark, as well as the 75th anniversary of the historic theatre, patrons and community members recognize the importance of the historic Brauntex Theatre, its presence in Downtown New Braunfels and its role in the arts community. The historic neon marquee has become the ‘flagship’ of a growing downtown business district and thriving arts community. Over three million dollars in contributions, services and grants have been used to perform the initial remodel and refurbish the Brauntex to the facility it is today. However, much more is needed to complete the master plan. The Association has just completed roof and ceiling renovations and will continue to work on remaining phases such as plans for updated infrastructure and needed technical improvements, adding ADA accessibility upstairs for both staff and patrons, and most importantly, the restoration of the historic ticket booth.

For over a decade, the Brauntex Performing Arts Theatre has brought cultural and entertainment experiences to the region. The Association strives to educate its audience and community youth about the value of the arts and support the preservation and ongoing development of the cultural arts in New Braunfels. In addition to these pursuits, the Association continuously makes great efforts towards maintaining and improving the current structure, promoting arts appreciation and improving audience retention and growth. Since our re-opening, the Brauntex Performing Arts Theatre continues to be a resource for the expansion and promotion of the arts and entertainment in the Hill Country and Central Texas. 

The historic Brauntex Performing Arts Theatre is supported by the generosity of individual donations, private and public foundations, individual and corporate sponsorship, the New Braunfels Arts Commission and by Texas Commission on the Arts.
