Kix Brooks Sets His Sights on Preserving 93-Year-Old Louisiana Theatre

Louisiana native Kix Brooks is supporting the preservation of a 93-year-old theatre in his home state with a two-day benefit on Sept. 28 and 29 in Franklin Parish.

Kix will host a two-day Kickin’ It With Kix fundraiser to help preserve the Princess Theatre in Winnsboro, La., which was originally established in 1925 to showcase silent movies.

On Sept. 28, Kix will headline an intimate performance at the Princess Theatre, with tickets on sale now for $25.

On Sep. 29, corporate and individual donors can take part in an event at Kix’s farm in Extension, La., that will feature dinner, wine from Kix’s Arrington Vineyards label, a live auction and more. There are several levels of support available, ranging from $1,500 to $15,000. Auction items include tickets and a meet-and-greet for four guests at the Reba & Brooks & Dunn Together in Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace on Dec. 8.

“Preserving venues like the Princess, which bring the arts to rural communities, is more important than ever,” said Kix. “The arts inspire and institutions like this theatre provide a necessary public service and a convenient, affordable location to experience live entertainment.”
