Our top priority at the Branson Regional Arts Council will always be the health and safety of all patrons, volunteers, students, actors, staff and others involved in events being held at the Historic Owen Theatre.

In light of growing concerns over the COVID-19 coronavirus, we are proactively preparing for the very real possibility of an outbreak in our area in the days to come. Therefore, we are postponing all events and classes at the Historic Owen Theatre until May 1st.

Affected events include: The Odd Couple (comedy play) – now rescheduled to May 14-17; Song Writing Workshop (with Prince Ivan) – now rescheduled to September 5th; The Hunchback of Notre Dame (musical) – now rescheduled to October 8-15th; The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged (comedy play) – now rescheduled to Aug 6, 9, 10; and all Arts and Youth Education Classes.

Current ticket holders to theatre events will be notified of the date changes, and we will accommodate any necessary refunds that these postponements may present.

We have no plans to reschedule any of our other 2020 season productions, but we will continue to monitor the recommendations of the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) response to and guidance about the coronavirus disease. BRAC will follow the guidance of the CDC, the State of Missouri, and the Taney County Health Department about managing events accordingly.

In the meantime, we have significantly increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting of all public and backstage areas beyond our previous schedule, and have added additional alcohol-based sanitizer dispensers for public use in the lobby and restrooms. We invite patrons to make use of soap, paper towels and tissues available in our restrooms. We also request that our volunteers and staff refrain from hand shaking whenever possible.

After we resume our event schedules, we encourage any ticket holders who may be experiencing cold or flu symptoms, or reside with an obviously sick family member, to please stay home and contact our box office for ticket refunds or exchanges to a later date.

We will continue to monitor the progress of this virus threat, and if warranted, will take additional measures for the safety of our area residents, visitors and performers.

Thank you for your support and understanding as we all stand up against this virus and work together to shorten the length of this International crisis.

The Branson Regional Arts Council is seeking area artists to display in the Rock Room Gallery at the Historic Owen Theatre as part of our next exhibition entitled “Cityscapes & New York Nights.”

The art exhibition will open concurrently with the upcoming comedy play The Odd Couple by Neil Simon with shows May 14 – 17th.

As the play takes place in New York City, the theme of this gallery showing will include anything that would relate to the Big Apple, city skylines, urban architecture, or even poker playing dogs and cigar smoking cats. Creative and imaginative works are encouraged for submission.

Approved artists must offer their works for sale on consignment with the Arts Council during the run of the display. Several paintings were sold to patrons during our previous “Art of Oz” exhibit in February.

Interested artists should contact the Branson Regional Arts Council and submit a photo sample of their work(s) to info@bransonarts.org.

Modern Songwriting & Production with Prince Ivan

Saturday, March 21, 2020 9:00am-12:00pm
Historic Owen Theatre
$20 Registration Fee (benefits the Branson Regional Arts Council)

REGISTER FOR THE PRINCE IVAN WORKSHOP

Over the last couple of years, local songwriting and production duo, Prince Ivan, has traveled between Branson and LA to collaborate with writers, producers and engineers who have worked with everyone from Snoop Dogg to Lady Gaga to Justin Bieber. Along the way they have learned many of the secrets of commercial songwriting and production and now they are going to share them with you.

Aaron Space, Brydon Brett

The duo recently released a new album, “The Preface,” which earned them a spot (from a field of over 3000 bands) on the Springboard West Festival roster in San Diego, CA and their song, “Let Her Be Beautiful,” will be featured in an upcoming film release “The Never List.”

In this workshop presented by the Branson Regional Arts Council, they will take you behind the scenes and into the process of creating their album and share with you everything from song structure to toplining, beat making to recording and all of the elements that you’ll need to create high quality music for today’s competitive musical marketplace.

Whether you’re a beginner or a more seasoned writer or producer, you will benefit from the wealth of knowledge and experience Prince Ivan will share with you in this three-hour workshop.

“We invite folks to bring their songs to the workshop (either to sing live or play an MP3 for us), as we will do some live feedback during the workshop. We can’t guarantee their song will get critiqued during the workshop, but we’ll have time to do that on 3-5 songs.” – Brydon Brett

About Prince Ivan

Prince Ivan is a songwriting, production and performing duo consisting of Brydon Brett and Aaron Space. The duo calls their musical output, SpectraPop— a fresh fusion of styles from across the Top 40 spectrum designed to break down cultural and musical boundary lines. From being a trio to being a duo, to seeking a record deal and not getting it, and then almost quitting altogether, Prince Ivan has been through the fire over these last two years. Their first full length album, “The Preface,” (released on December 13, 2019) marks the completion of that phase of their story and the beginning of a new chapter in the Chronicles of Prince Ivan.

Live on stage, Prince Ivan is captivating and engaging—combining the energy and hype of a DJ dance party with the connection and intimacy of a singer-songwriter set. Their fully produced live concert can be experienced on tour at high schools, colleges, festivals and cities all across North America. For more information about Prince Ivan’s music, message and mission please visit www.princeivan.com.

January 25, 2020 6pm-8pm
At: Historic Owen Theatre, Branson MO
Click Here For Audition Details.

The Odd Couple is a play by American playwright, Neil Simon. It premiered on Broadway in 1965 and tells the story of two very different roommates who must find ways to get along. It’s a very popular play which has been adapted into both a film and a television series. “The Odd Couple” received a nomination in 1965 for the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award. The BRAC production is directed by Jody Madaras.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame is based on the Victor Hugo novel and songs from the Disney animated feature. The production howcases the film’s Academy Award-nominated score, as well as new songs by Menken and Schwartz. Peter Parnell’s new book embraces story theatre and features verbatim passages from Hugo’s gothic novel. The BRAC production is directed by Jordan Alexander-Holt.

Rock Room Art Gallery At The Historic Owen Theatre

When the Branson Regional Arts Council began operations from their new home in the Historic Owen Theatre in January 2018, one of their short term goals was to create an artist gallery, within the venue, as a place to feature a variety of area artists in rotation to coincide with major theatrical musicals and plays on the Owen Theatre stage.

“This gallery space fits perfectly into our long term goal of preserving the rich cultural heritage that Jim Owen brought to our community when he built the entertainment venue in 1936. In fact, in addition to the movie theatre, the original use of this facility included a jewelry and art gallery shop curated by Elsa Bates Freund, the famed Ozarks artist and good friend of Jim Owen.”
– Jim Barber, Executive Director of the Arts Council

Elsa Bates Freund was commemorated by the City of Branson and the Branson Art Council with a metal plaque in her honor, mounted to the front entrance of the Historic Owen Theatre building on South Commercial Street.

Two of her four original wall murals are still on display inside the seating area of the theatre. Unfortunately, a previous tenant painted over two of the four murals, but the Arts Council is exploring the possibility of restoring those original works for future generations to enjoy.

Creation of this new artist gallery space was possible because of the generous donations and hard work from several volunteer board members of the Branson Regional Arts Council and others. Special thanks to Marty Schmitt (donated art wall hanging system), Darla Howe, Nathan Howe, Kim Hale, Art Hale (room preparation, sanding painting, staining, lighting fixtures and curtains), and Lowe’s Hollister (donated paint and stain).

James “Kwaku” Addai

Lisa Murphy, BRAC Board Member Emeritus and Art Committee Chair, invited Internationally renowned artist, James “Kwaku” Addai, to be the first artist featured in the new gallery space.  An opening night reception at the gallery was celebrated by patrons attending the musical Seven Brides For Seven Brothers on November 1st, with special music provided by pianist Delyla Uebel.

Several of Addai’s works have been on display for the past two theatre productions, and were enjoyed by approximately 2,000 patrons. He also donated his artistic skills to paint a canvas mountain scene backdrop for the Seven Brides for Seven Brothers musical production.

If you didn’t get an opportunity to see Mr. Addai’s work at the Historic Owen Theatre, he is also currently featured at the Branson Convention Center Art Exhibition along with a dozen other talented area artists. This Branson Regional Arts Council sponsored exhibition is located on the second floor tier of the Branson Convention Center, and open year round to the general public.

Coming to the Rock Room Gallery in 2020…

In 2020, the Arts Council plans on featuring a wide variety of local area artists in the Rock Room Gallery, with rotating exhibitions that relate in some way to the featured stage production at the time.

Currently, the gallery exhibits will only be open to the public in conjunction with any live musicals or plays presented at the theatre. Discussions are in the works, however, to secure a full or part-time curator so that regular gallery visiting hours may be established year-round.

Call For Artists…

On February 14th, the musical The Wizard Of Oz will be presented, and any artists who would like to submit theme related works for consideration to be displayed in the gallery are asked to contact the Branson Regional Arts Council at info@bransonarts.org. If selected, artists will be able to offer their exhibited works for sale to the public during the run of the musical which is expected to play to sold out audiences through March 1st.

Rock Room Gallery at the Historic Owen Theatre

The Branson Regional Arts Council is thankful for the tremendous financial support we have received from our theatre patrons, benefactors, members and grant providers in 2019. You are helping us to grown an incredible community arts program that our area has needed for so very long.

Please consider making a year-end financial contribution! 

“The prescription for a healthy Community Arts program includes an annual vision check to be certain we have a clear understanding of where we are heading as an organization. If you take a look at what we’ve accomplished in just the past two years, everything comes into focus! Please consider making a year-end 2019 financial contribution to help us achieve our 2020 Vision for all residents of the Branson area!”
– Jim Barber – BRAC Executive Director

Our 2020 Vision is to continue the growth that was started in 2018, and make significant progress towards paying off the theatre venue so we can ensure that our community will continue to benefit from these arts programs for generations to come!

Since moving our offices into the Historic Owen Theatre in January 2018, BRAC has presented NINETEEN major productions (musicals and plays), and several cabaret style concerts. Over 18,000 patron tickets were generated for those programs! That year we also founded a Youth Arts Education Program for students ages 8-18, providing high quality education in vocal music, theatre arts and dance from certified instructors. In February 2019, our youth show choir STACCATO successfully represented the Ozarks at Festival Disney, a national music competition in Florida. Our Branson Convention Center Art Exhibition has been viewed by an estimated 100,000 visitors each year! In November 2019 we opened the “Rock Room Gallery” inside the Historic Owen Theatre as a new way to promote local area artists, as well as hold visual arts painting classes for kids and adults! These programs are making a positive impact on our entire region, and we would be honored if you would join us in our efforts to grow arts opportunities for residents across the Ozarks!
