Magic, Music and Tributes Galore will Thrill New and Returning Visitors
to America’s Top Live Music Show Destination

BRANSON, Mo. – Like flowers bursting into bloom, new shows blossom each spring on several Branson stages. This season, theaters will be popping with musical extravaganzas, dazzling acrobats and masterful feats of magic, created by some of the most exciting stars of the entertainment world.

First-time visitors and returning fans alike will love this spring’s attractions, which offer entertainment for all ages. March brings the debuts of Jay Osmond Live, of the famed family band, the Osmonds, and his son, Eric; Aaron Wayne’s Sweet Dreams comedy hypnosis show; and Dustin Tavella, Now I See, featuring the America’s Got Talent-winning magician, musician and storyteller. All three can be seen at the Reza Live Theatre, 645 Missouri Highway 165.

In April, audiences will thrill(er) to Michael Knight’s MJ the Illusion: Re-living the King of Pop, billed not as a tribute show, but as “a Michael Jackson concert experience.” It also takes place at the Reza Live Theatre. Southern Gospel Sundays, featuring Michael and Jen Frost and their daughter, Jael, with pianist Clayton Watson, will begin at the end of April at the Americana Theatre, 2905 W. 76 Country Blvd.

May brings gravity-defying, electrifying feats of body-bending acrobatics by the cast of CIRQUE-Electric Dreams, from Cirque Dreams, a Cirque du Soleil subsidiary, debuting at King’s Castle Theatre, 2701 W. 76 Country Blvd., while the Pepsi Legends Theater, formerly the Dick Clark American Bandstand Theater (at 1600 W. 76 Country Blvd.), debuts The Man in Black, A Tribute to Johnny Cash, with Shawn Parker as the iconic country star.

Another event sure to excite audiences is the return of El Mago Pop, the onstage persona created by world-renowned illusionist Antonio Díaz. Díaz took Branson by storm last year when he acquired the former Mel Tillis Theater, now the Branson Magic Theater (at 2527 East State Highway 248), and debuted his amazing feats of illusion, wrapped in an immersive experience of special effects, comedy and music. Netflix subscribers may be familiar with Díaz’s two popular shows, Magic for Humans and La Gran Ilusión.

Of course, fabulous longtime favorites will be back for more music, more laughs and more ways to rock audiences’ worlds. For a full rundown of Branson’s live entertainment offerings, go to
