Unity Theatre History
Co-founded in 1995 by two sisters, the Unity Theatre formed as a non-profit organization with the goal of bringing the Brenham community together. Starting off in a location too small for their growing subscribers and professionals, the theatre moved a few blocks away to their current location in historic downtown Brenham. The second site officially opened on New Year’s Eve in 2001 with a lavish masquerade party. With sponsors and donations, the theatre is still able to function today and bring wonder and community to the city of Brenham. The theatre is so well known that it now attracts audience members all the way from Houston, Austin, and beyond. With their first season starting in 1995, they have held popular productions such as Alice in Wonderland, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Sound of Music, and the Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
Unity Theatre Upcoming Productions
As the 2015-2016 season started, the theatre put on a production of Always…Patsy Cline and is currently hosting their annual Christmas play, Miracle on 34th Street. This comedy/drama follows the story of Kris Kringle, an old man in a retirement home, who starts working as Santa for a local Macy’s store. To help parents find exactly what their children want for Christmas, Kringle directs parents to other stores to find their gifts. This puts Kringle in trouble with Macy’s where he ends up in a court competency hearing and a little girl’s belief in Santa is at stake. The next shows coming up in February, April, and June include The Miss Firecracker Contest, Jerry Finnegan’s Sister, and Scapino! respectively.
