OPAS Performances

World-Class Performing Arts Just Steps Away

Broadway shows, intimate gatherings, and more, come to life thanks to the MSC Opera and Performing Arts Society (OPAS), a partner organization to Texas A&M University’s Memorial Student Center (MSC). Since 1972, MSC OPAS has brought world-class performing arts events to Brazos Valley via the Rudder Theatre Complex, just a quick walk down famed Joe Routt Boulevard.

Being just steps from Rudder Theater has its perks and makes us the perfect destination for dinner before any OPAS Performance.  Join us at Brazos - Proper Texas Kitchen for traditional cooking techniques and local flavors are elevated with a modern twist in “True Texas” fashion.  Dive into our 72 Hour Texas Wagyu Brisket, or Crispy Honey-Fried Chicken – a classic, iconic, pioneering tour de force that beckons us back time and time again. Comfort food is at its finest in a warm, inviting atmosphere celebrating gracious Southern hospitality and melding the flavors of Texas’ past with its future.

We have a prix fixe menu selected just for you to ensure you have time to enjoy a delicious meal and still make it to the show on time.  We can hold your dessert and you can revisit us after the performance for a night cap and sweet treat to end your night. Book an overnight stay and you can take the elevator home to experience where the OPAS performers stay.
