How to Choose a Theater Show in Branson
While there’s plenty to keep you busy in and around Branson, Missouri, no visit would be complete without taking in one of the city’s dozens of shows found along the town’s 76 Strip theater district. Here’s how to choose the best show for you.
For Kid Friendly Fun Branson’s lineup of shows skews family friendly, but some are a bigger hit with kids than others. Stunt shows and Chinese acrobatics are always a good bet.
For a Romantic Night Out There’s a show for every type of date night. Go sultry with a Vegas-style cirque show, or opt for a night of Broadway’s greatest hits. For a night out beneath the stars, book tickets to The Shepherd of the Hills in an outdoor theater.
For a Taste of Nostalgia Branson does nostalgia well, with tribute shows to all sorts: Elvis, The Beach Boys, ABBA, The Beatles, Patsy Cline, Frank Sinatra, and Jimmy Buffet, just to name a few. You can also opt more general throwbacks, including bluegrass, country, doo wop, rock ’n’ roll, big band, or Motown.
For Comic Relief Those in need of a little comic relief can book ahead for the hilarious—and often sold out—Comedy Jamboree, laugh out loud at the impersonations of Mike Walker, or feel the magic of Taylor Reed.
