I'm 21 and probably a bit too critical of acting and entertainment, but this show had no disappointments... Completely amazing. Worth every penny, and then some!

This is one of the best shows I have seen in Branson!! I'm not quite sure why the theater was not packed for this show. It was absolutely amazing to see the wonderful talent of each performer! The two hour show flew by very quickly. Yes, the grounds of theater needed some work, but everyone should take the time to... More

The show was great and you get to meet and have your picture taken with them after the show. They told stories through the show.

This was an amazing show. We went with our 18 yr old grandaughter and we all throughly enjoyed it. The 2 hour show flew by. I definitely would recommend it. We bought our tickets from All Access Branson, and got a great deal on the tickets!

Our 14 year old daughter researched different shows and based on the reviews she read, she recommended this show.

It was amazing to see the younger artists... More

Enjoyed the show. A bit slow in the beginning and the narrator was not what I expected to announce each act. It was just a voice describing the next act.
