Dividing The Estate at The Balzer Theater at Herren’s
Old resentments and sibling rivalries bubble to the surface as the hilariously dysfunctional Gordon family of Harrison, Texas, spar to claim the biggest piece of the pie in the wildly funny, Tony-nominated Dividing The Estate by Pulitzer Prize and Oscar-winning Horton Foote. Matriarch Stella Gordon keeps her aging and money-strapped children on a short financial leash with no plans to split her 100-year old estate. But the kids have other ideas.
Dividing The Estate runs through April 20th. Show times and ticket prices vary by show and are available through the find ticket button below.

Over the course of the past few years, SOJA has sold more than 200,000 albums, headlined large theaters in more than 20 countries around the world, generated over 40 million YouTube views, amassed nearly 2 million Facebook fans, and attracted an almost Grateful Dead-like international fanbase that grows with each tour, with caravans of diehards following them from city to city. Most impressive of all, they’ve accomplished all this on their own. This 8-piece band has spent the past year and a half grinding it out from venue to venue, playing more than 360 dates, including headlining sold-out tours of North and South America, as well as opening for O.A.R. and sharing stages with everyone from Dave Matthews Band to Matisyahu.
Doors at 7 p.m. Tickets: $20 in advance, $24 day of show. Online and phone sales close at 4 p.m. day of show.

From the curiously-produced industrial training video to the forsaken home movie donated to Goodwill, the Found Footage Festival resurrects these forgotten treasures and serves them up in a lively celebration of all things found.
Doors at $8 p.m. Tickets: $12 Online and phone sales close at 6 p.m. day of show.
