Sharon’s Picks for Branson’s Live Entertainment

If you aren’t seeing a live show in Branson, you aren’t doing Branson right. The Live Entertainment Capital of the World is home to more than 60,000 theater seats spread throughout more than 50 theaters – that’s more theater seats than the Broadway district in New York.

Guests at the Cabins are invited to “Breakfast with the Stars,” an interactive sampler of 20-25 acts who perform a quick preview for guests, give away show tickets, and have a ball, with a tasty breakfast to boot. It’s a special event on Monday mornings starting in April, only available to guests at the Cabins. If you haven’t been to Branson yet, don’t worry about buying tickets ahead of time. You’ll not only get a preview at the breakfast, but they also offer deep discounts on nearly every show in Branson!

We sat down with Sharon Hunt, activities director at Cabins at Green Mountain for the last eight years, to see who the hot acts are that everyone is talking about. Just a note, these acts are seasonal, and all will be in full swing by mid-April. There is also not a single show in Branson that is not family-friendly, so bring everyone!

Sharon’s picks:

Moses at the Sight and Sound Theatre: This Bible story brought to life has one more season in Branson and will be there until Oct. 31.

The Duttons: This family act is more than music – these chipper performers interact with the crowd and throw some comedy in there too. Not to miss!

George Dyer: This tenor has an operatic style that is very unique. See him at the Mickey Gilley Theatre.

The Bretts: A dynamic family show which combines singing, comedy, dance and lighting. This is a morning show, so see it early with family, then grab lunch!

Illusionist Rick Thomas: Rick has traveled the world and now performs exclusively in Branson. Be amazed at his own special brand of traditional and stage magic.

All Hands on Deck!: This nostalgic radio style show, set in 1946, is for the old timers. Intensely patriotic, this new show harkens back to the days of Bob Hope.

Forever Young: A music and dance show that is set in a neighborhood basement, Forever Young walks down the memory lane of music.

Buckets and Boards: This creative percussion show is funny, engaging and great for kids.
