Keeping the Tradition of “Mr. Christmas”: Andy Williams Moon River Theatre

In Branson, Christmas comes to life in a variety of shows, attractions and light displays across the city. One of Branson’s favorite Christmas traditions lives at Andy Williams Moon River Theatre, where “Mr. Christmas” entertained audiences of all ages for years.

Before coming to Branson in 1992, Andy Williams had built a successful career as an entertainer that spanned over 50 years. His solo career began in 1952, and grew alongside the careers of famous crooners like Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Perry Como and Tony Bennett. He recorded 17 gold records, and even hosted his own TV variety show from 1962 to 1971. Williams obtained the title of Mr. Christmas in the 1960s and 70s on his TV show by airing holiday programs. Peter Sagal of National Public Radio said Williams was the man who invented the heartwarming Christmas special.

Christmas at Andy Williams Moon River TheatreIn addition to his holiday TV specials, Williams recorded Christmas songs like the famous “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.” Each year, radio stations around the country play this famous Christmas tune. In Branson, you can tune in to 105.9 KGBX from Thanksgiving Day until after Christmas for constant holiday music, including Williams’ songs.

Williams visited Branson and decided to return to build a theatre. The $12 million theatre is 48,000 square feet and features beautiful landscape architecture, including rock formations, waterfalls and foliage. When the theatre opened, it was one of Branson’s most unique, since the town was mostly dominated by country performers. Other non-country performances began to make their way into Branson, and soon the town grew to be known as the live music capital of the world.

When Williams brought his show to Branson in 1992, he began performing live Christmas concerts during the holiday season. The Andy Williams Christmas Show has been a visitor favorite, drawing in crowds from miles away and out of state. Some families even make annual trips to Branson for the heartwarming performance of Andy Williams. In addition to the Christmas show, Williams performed with a number of big name entertainers, such as Glen Campbell, Petula Clark, and Ann-Margret.

This year, the Andy Williams Christmas Show will be without Mr. Christmas for the first time. Since Williams’ death in 2012, the Moon River Theatre has continued to operate, bringing talented artists like Lee Greenwood and Clint Black. This year’s Christmas show will still go on, featuring the Osmonds and the Lennon Sisters, who appeared alongside Williams over the years.

This year’s show promises to be a spectacular one as usual. This full production show features a full orchestra, dancers, variety acts and the music of the Christmas season. This year’s show will also include a tribute to Mr. Christmas. The Andy Williams Christmas Show begins Nov. 1 and continues Monday through Saturday until Dec. 7. Each year, the Christmas show has filled the 2000 seat theatre,

In addition to the Christmas show, the First Annual Christmas Tree Lighting will occur at the Moon River Theatre on Nov. 1 at 5 p.m. The tree lighting will be part of a tribute to Williams and the joy his show brought to his audiences over the years.

This holiday season, make sure to see the Andy Williams Christmas Show when you’re in Branson. Your family will love the heartwarming songs and cheer that Mr. Christmas brought to Branson all those years ago.

Prepare Now For Black Friday Shopping in Branson

That one day is almost here. No, not Christmas. No, not Thanksgiving either – rather, it is something in between. The day in question, folks, is the much anticipated (or much dreaded, depending on who you are!) Black Friday. The one day a year where American shoppers all over the nation converge on every store in town for their holiday shopping, sales, and bargains. What does this mean for Branson? It means you should get your Black Friday game plan together now so you’ll be ready when it hits, because there is some spectacular shopping in Branson to be had!

Pick Your Stores: The first part of drafting your Black Friday plan is to select which stores you plan to shop at in Branson, or in the area surrounding Branson. Be sure you know where your holiday shopping spree stores of choice are located, and what the best routes are to get there – it can often be helpful to take some of Branson’s back routes to get from point A to point B to avoid holiday traffic around town. Also know what time stores open for business! In order to avoid blowing a lot of cash by going completely crazy on Black Friday (“My goodness, I just can’t live without this sparkly pink dog sweater!” or “My mother-in-law would surely love this toaster that plays music”), it is a wise decision to make a list of what and who you need to shop for, so you can visit stores that are relative to your purchases and resist the temptation to go hog wild just because things are on sale. Do you have a teenage girl to shop for? Check out Rue 21 at the Tanger Outlet Mall. Know someone who has a sweet tooth? Stop by the Northwoods Candy Emporium on the Branson Landing. Need that perfect gift for an office Christmas party? You’re sure to find something fun and unique at Dick’s 5 and 10 in Downtown Branson. Is there a farmer in your life? Visit the Tractor Supply Company in Hollister, Missouri, for a great selection of Wrangler clothing, tools and country themed gifts.

Grab Your Coupons: Obviously, stores that participate in Black Friday have a plethora of items on sale and in store specials. But make sure you do your research, because some stores also have coupons available as well. These can be found online or in the paper – so clip away! Or, if you are a paper saver or perhaps just a technology guru, simply pull the coupons up on your smartphone while you are in the checkout line! Be sure to also peruse sale flyers that come in the mail, and to check out store Facebook pages.

Set Your Alarm: If you are a diehard Black Friday shopper, chances are that you wake up around 4am to get to the stores the minute the doors open. To ensure shopping success, set your alarm and get to bed early the night before. And remember to have some breakfast! Preparing a morning meal the night before can save you time in the morning and get you off to a healthy start.

So now that you have your A game in place, you are ready to take advantage of Black Friday shopping in Branson! May the deals be ever in your favor.
