This is an exclusive Branson Regional Arts Council event, and is limited to the first 200 people who register. Tickets are on-sale now for $75 per person and all funds raised benefit the BRAC.

This will be THE BRANSON NEW YEARS EVENT of the year!

Participants are invited to dress as though they are attending a 1930’s Movie Premiere in the Golden Age of Hollywood, but we welcome any festive attire that our patrons wish to wear that evening. Live cabaret entertainment will be provided by Forte’ Theatre Company as well as other surprise guest performers. A delicious assortment of finger foods and hors d’oeuvres will be served, as well as a nice variety of refreshments, from sodas, water, wine and even a champagne toast! Party favors for everyone and surprises galore!

When the clock strikes Midnight, we will all participate in a very special ceremony as the keys to the venue are handed over to the Branson Regional Arts Council Board of Directors.  On January 1st, 2018, the Historic Owen Theatre will become… YOUR COMMUNITY THEATRE and the new home office of the Arts Council.

PURCHASE NYE TICKETS NOW

More information on this exciting event will be announced in the coming weeks, but NOW IS THE TIME to get your tickets!  Only 200 seats are available! We also have a small block of discounted overnight lodging at the Branson Convention Center Hotel, which is a short, 5 minute walk from the theatre. Why drive home after the event when you can check in early, then walk over to the theatre for our event at 8pm!

The curtain is rising on a new-era of Arts Entertainment in Branson, Missouri. Join us for this fun and historic event!
