Branson Shows Start Their Christmas Season
While some places slow down for the holidays, Branson is definitely one of those that never slows down. As the holidays approach, Branson’s shows are gearing up for their new holiday show lineups.
One of the shows in Branson preparing for its Christmas season is the Miracle of Christmas at Sight and Sound Theaters. You can witness one of the greatest births in history and the reason for the season by getting your tickets for the Miracle of Christmas. Named the “Christian Broadway”, Sight and Sound Theaters brings you a unique theater experience with a wraparound stage and bring the action of the show right into the audience. The Bible comes to life all around you. The Miracle of Christmas brings the bustle of Bethlehem right to you, with camels, horses, and donkeys parading by. You can enjoy treats and festivities on-site before the show, so come early to join the holiday spirit at Sight and Sound.
One of Branson’s other Christmas shows is Jim Stafford’s Christmas Show. Filled with merriment and laughter, Jim Stafford is sure to bring a smile to your face when you visit him from Nov. 3 to Dec. 12. Shows are at 8 p.m. Sunday-Wednesday and 3 p.m. shows on Thursdays. Tickets for the show are $36.75 for adults (18 years old and over), $19.30 for teens (13 – 17 years old), $13.10 for children (7 – 12) and $5.50 for children 6 and under. Family passes and VIP tickets are available. To get more information, go online to jimstafford.com or call 1-417-335-8080.
The Andy Williams Christmas Show featuring the Osmonds and the Lennon Sisters will also return to Branson in 2013. This year, the show will feature a tribute to Williams, a.k.a. “Mr. Christmas” himself. The full show features amazing sets, dancers, a full orchestra, variety acts and the sounds of Christmas. From Nov. 1 – Dec. 7, the Osmonds and the Lennon Sisters will entertain audiences at the Andy Williams Moon River Theater. Shows are Monday – Saturday at 8 p.m. For more information about tickets, visit andywilliamstheatre.com.
The Little Opry Theatre also features the Sanctified Sanders Family Singers and their Sanders Family Christmas. Located in the Branson IMAX Entertainment Complex, the Sanders Family brings a Christmas story from 1941 to audiences with faith, family and old-fashioned fun.
The Sanders Family Christmas show continues the Sanders family story from Smoke on the Mountain. It’s Christmas Eve, 18 days after the attack on Pearl Harbor. The Depression is ending, but war looms on the horizon. Their only son is joining the Marine Corps, and the Sanders Family is having to say goodbye. But, before he goes, the family is working on the Christmas celebration at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church. They use Christmas carols and holiday hymns to help raise the spirits of the audience and the rest of the family.
