When the Sun Goes Down, the Curtain Goes Up in Branson

Aug 31, 2008
While Branson, Missouri may be well known for its daytime activities such as hiking, biking and boating, Branson's real draw is its nightlife. For anyone who appreciates live entertainment, this town has over 50 theaters that feature more than 100 unique productions.

These aren't just any shows either. In Branson, the best talent in music, comedy and dramatic performance bring these theaters to life with outstanding renditions of everything from country classics to readings of favorite American literature.

Whether you are looking for a Broadway-style show or a celebration of country music, Branson is the place to be for entertainment. As you plan your upcoming vacation, be sure to check if your hotel offers any package deals that get you tickets to any of these shows.

Music

Wayne Newton. The Oakridge Boys. The holiday music of Mannheim Steamroller. The list of incredible performers in Branson can go on forever, and shows take place every night while you are on vacation. Branson is steeped in a very rich musical heritage that includes performers like Johnny Cash, Kenny Rogers and the Osmond Family. Perhaps one of the greatest assets of live music in Branson is that many of these shows are based on familiar music that everyone in the audience can appreciate. There is a show dedicated to the Beatles' music as well as other shows that include country western sing-a-longs

Dinner Theaters

In Branson, there are two favorites for many tourists: the restaurant and the stage. With three popular dinner theaters in Branson, this combination makes for a wonderful evening with the family. At Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede, attendees enjoy a four-course meal and a Wild West revue with animals and pyrotechnics. Enjoy a hilarious wide variety of music from all genres at the White House Theater, and take in the cool waters of Table Rock Lake at night with your cruise on the Showboat Branson Belle while you watch "Showstoppers", a world renowned production.

Family

All performers in Branson agree on one very crucial aspect to the town: these shows are family friendly. While some productions in other cities may include material inappropriate for young children, you won't find any of that here. Founded on values that stress the importance of family, Branson continues to showcase incredible talent for all ages.

Cost

Perhaps one of the most attractive parts of Branson nightlife is the prices of these show tickets. While many other shows in America have entrance fees that reach well into the $300 range, you won't find a ticket in Branson that costs much more than $60. Most theaters and shows also offer discounted or free tickets for children's admission, which will make you breathe easier about your vacation budget.

From comedy to concerts, expect a vacation in Branson to give you some of the best nights of entertainment in the world. Whether you are here for a week or a night, these shows will give you memories to last a lifetime!
