Clay Cooper Theater Features Family Shows
There is no shortage of good shows to see in Branson, Missouri. Everything from magic, to dance, to outlaws on horseback and everything in between can be found in the entertainment hub of the Midwest! The nice thing about shows in Branson is the fact that nearly all of them are family friendly – they are the kind of shows that you can bring the kids, grandpa and your mother-in-law to without worrying that the material presented will be offensive or that somebody will get bored. For some truly top notch family shows, get your tickets to the Clay Cooper Theater, where you’ll find not one, but five great shows that everyone will love!
Clay Cooper’s Country Express
For a toe tapping, high energy, hootin’ and hollerin’ show to remember, come see Clay Cooper’s Country Express! Clay Cooper, a Branson performer since the age of sixteen, will put on a show for you and your family to remember. Clay Cooper came to Branson at sixteen to perform with a children’s band by the name of the Texas Goldminors. He fell in love with the life of a performer, and found a true joy in country music, singing and playing bass. Clay performed in multiple shows around town and is now in his twenty-sixth season of Clay Cooper’s Country Express in his own theater across from the Titanic Museum. The Country Express Show features talented country music, a dance troupe led by Clay’s wife, Tina Cooper, a trick roper and gunslinger extraordinaire, a routine by nine year old Colt Cooper, comedy, and so much more! For a variety show that is just that, get your tickets for Clay Cooper’s Country Express.
For a bit of music from every era you can think of, make your reservations for the Rankin Brothers Classic Music Review!
