Christmas Season in Brenham - Live Entertainment
There is venue so much to see and do this Christmas season in Brenham, we can't just write one blog post about it! So, this installment touches on the many live entertainment opportunities in Brenham and the surrounding area this season.
I suppose the best way to start is to start with the closest venues to Ant Street Inn, and work our way out. That means we start with the HOMEsweetFARM market and biergarten, within easy stumbling distance of ASI, just out our back door. Every Friday and Saturday night, HOMEsweetFARM presents the talents of local and regional musicians. Check the schedule here!
Next, we have the chronically awesome Unity Theatre! Just a few steps farther out the back door, Unity Theatre presents Little Women this Christmas season. The curtain drops every Thursday at 7:30 PM, Friday and Saturday at 8:00 PM, and Sunday afternoon at 4:00 PM from December 1st through the 18th. You can order tickets online here, but don't forget all the great benefits of securing our Unity Ticket Package as a guest at the Ant Street Inn!
When you book your room at the Ant Street Inn (being sure to check the dates and show times), whether you book online or over the phone, you can Enhance Your Stay by adding the Unity Theatre Ticket Package. Regardless of which show date you choose, you'll get discounted tickets at $23 each (usually $30 at the box office). If you choose a Friday night or Saturday night show, as guests of the Ant Street Inn, you'll automatically be members of the Players' Club for the evening! The Players' Club is a lounge just to the right of the main lobby as you enter the building, and it's always staffed by the great folks at Unity Theatre, who provide very nice (and complimentary to members) hors d'oeuvres and beverages, before the play, during intermission and after the show. And, after the show, the cast and crew come join you! So, book your room and tickets now!
Strolling just two blocks north of the Ant Street Inn on Douglas Street will lead you to the Barnhill Center at Historic Simon Theatre! A restored 1920's movie house, the Barnhill Center at Historic Simon Theatre represents the newest jewel in Brenham's crown. With a ballroom and amazingly restored theatre, the Simon shows classic movies as well as live entertainment. On Saturday, December 3, with two shows, one at 3:00 PM and the other at 8:00 PM, the Barnhill Center at Historic Simon Theatre presents Michael Martin Murphy's Cowboy Christmas Concert! You can buy your tickets online here, or at the box office.
And that's all within walking distance! Wow!
Festival Hill in Round Top, about 20 miles west of Brenham, will also have a performance at 3:00 PM Saturday, December 3! The PraiSingers' Holiday Choral Concert will be presented! The annual Festival Hill Open House will immediately follow the performance at the Menke House on the Festival Hill campus. You can order your tickets online here!
Wow, what possibilities!
