Volunteer & Donation Opportunities

Why Support The Barnhill Center?
  • Become more visible to locals and tourists.
  • Help foster unprecedented entertainment and cultural offerings for the community.
  • Promote the Simon Theatre’s historical and architectural importance.
  • Strengthen the operation and longevity of Brenham’s most iconic landmark.
  • Help attract visitors to our community, an important part of the local economy.
Donations are always appreciated.

As a non-profit operation, we are dependent on ticket and concession sales to cover the expenses of each show. These revenues sometimes fall short of expectations.

Additionally, enhancements are needed to improve our shows, our operation, and our hospitality for performers.

Wish List
  • Electrical upgrades in the auditorium (both levels) and backstage.
  • Video/projection upgrades to fulfill performers’ requests and offer shows that are more visually exciting.
  • Reconfiguration of stage curtains and ceiling beams to solve operational challenges.
  • Green Room enhancements to fulfill performers’ requirements and make them feel more comfortable.
  • Outdoor signage to promote shows.
  • Installation of editable text capability on the marquee above the front door.
Please help!

Call The Barnhill Center Box Office, any weekday between 9am and 5pm, to offer financial assistance or become a sponsor (below).

Volunteer to help at shows! It’s fun for people of all ages!

Experience the excitement of live performances while greeting guests and serving their needs. All of our volunteers are friendly, courteous, cheerful, respectful, and good with people.

Greeters are stationed outside the theatre to welcome guests, open doors and direct pedestrian traffic. Indoor Greeters help direct guests and answer questions.

Ticket Takers greet guests in the front lobby, check or scan their tickets, admit them into the theatre and answer questions.

Ushers greet guests at the auditorium doors, show them to their seats, and answer questions.
