The Browncoat Pub & Theatre

The Browncoat Pub & Theatre Your one-stop destination for live theatre, great bar specials, karaoke, and more! Established in 2007, The Browncoat Pub & Theatre is a strange hybrid.

While we are first and foremost a theatrical venue, we are also a geeky bar. Not only do we produce multiple plays a year, but we have nightly karaoke and a variety of other forms of entertainment, such as magicians and mentalists, comedians, art shows, and the Cape Fear Independent Film Festival. But at the root of it all, we can be summed up as a place where people can meet and share ideas, purs

Save the Browncoat Theatre!

Greetings everyone,

As you may have heard, we were unable to reach an agreement with the landlord that would work for us with the money we'd raised thus far, and so while we dearly wish that we could continue our efforts to keep the Browncoat Pub & Theatre open as is, it's just not possible.

The spirit of the Browncoat will live on, and in the future we hope to give the theater company a new home. The mission of providing a voice and outlet for those artists without other options is a vital one, and we remain committed to that mission. For the time being, though, we will be refunding all of the money that we raised as this goal is no longer viable.

However, we will be in touch when we're ready to try again, and we welcome and appreciate your donation to those efforts, whenever they may happen.

Thank you for helping us keep up the good fight.

Happy Friday everybody! We're getting down to the wire. We're meeting with the landlord on Sunday (storm permitting) to see if we can work out a final deal... but the more ammunition we have - including showing that the fundraiser is working - the better! We don't want to let him rent the building out to someone else, do we? So please, donate if you can, tell your friends, like, share, and SAVE THE BROWNCOAT!!!

Hey everyone… our fundraiser is going well, but we still have a lot of work to do. I want to make it clear; if this fundraiser doesn’t succeed, the Browncoat will no longer exist. Yes, we’re raising money to help with needed improvements, but we’re also fighting for the theater’s survival, so we need all of your help.

Also, I know there are some hard feelings and leftover resentment over the Browncoat’s previous owner, Richard Davis. Please understand; Richard is no longer a part of this. As of this morning, he and Amber have moved to Knoxville, TN. Not a penny raised will be going into his pocket. Every penny raised will go to one purpose – saving the Browncoat and keeping this haven for local artists around. I humbly ask your help in accomplishing that goal.

Closed tonight and Thursday for repairs. Hope to be open on Friday. Thanks for your patience while our roof is being repaired.

Yes! We're open for karaoke tonight!

08/31/2016

Our roof is currently being entirely replaced! That's good news and bad news. Good news is that we'll soon be super dry inside the Browncoat! The bad news is that we'll have to be closed temporarily until the roofer finishes his work.

We hope to be back up and running on Friday!

Backstage at "Inherit the Stars"!

08/11/2016

Top 10 reasons to check out Browncoat Theatre's "Inherit the Stars" by Ray Wagner this weekend:

1) Star Wars vs. Star Trek. 'Nuff said.

2) Eric Ganey as a psychotic and foul-mouthed judge.

3) The R2-D2 dress.

4) Lt. Commander Ollie Daniels.

5) The celebrity cameos.

6) More justice than in your average American courtroom.

7) First-time playwright, first run of his show. Pretty special.

8) Two words: Lightsaber duel.

9) You get a chance to learn about "filking."

10) "Mercy Seat" and "Becoming Dr. Ruth" have more weekends after this one. We don't :) (And by the way... break legs guys!!! So proud to be part of this community where there is SO MUCH theater!)

Only 4 chances left to check us out. Be there at the Browncoat tonight! Doors open at 7:30!
