Brown County Playhouse Management has a goal of creating a sustainable future for the Brown County Playhouse. Working hard to reach that goal, we are establishing systems and tactics to reach that goal. Some of our systems need initial investment including movie equipment, modernizing the lighting system and updating the physical plant.

The Playhouse is an important part of the cultural life of the Brown County Community and numerous supporters have contributed to an endowment at the BC Community Foundation to assure the playhouse remains as a vibrant cultural institution.

You can become a member of the Herman B. Wells Society by including the Playhouse in your estate planning. Contact us for more details.
