Join us in Branson, the “Live Entertainment Capital of the World,” as we experience good ol’ American music, theater and fun in the heart of the Ozarks. Find out the history of Branson's overnight success, the elements of its entertainment scene, its emergence into international tourism, and the famous Branson formula of “Faith, Family, and Flag.” Branson hosts more than 100 live theater shows, and we have seats for you at four popular ones, often surrounded by lectures, meet-and-greets, and Q&A’s. Plus, you’ll enjoy two private performances just for the group, as well as a dinner-and-entertainment experience.


• Enjoy seven live performances, with two given just for our private group.
• Enjoy a private morning tea with music pioneer DeeDee Lennon, and learn about the indelible mark her famous family has made on the live performance industry.
• Meet with current performers and production specialists such as technicians and set designers to hear what it's like to work in the business and how they make the magic happen.
