The Dutton Arizona Experience
Join the Duttons in the Valley of the Sun every winter for more of the Dutton Experience! The Duttons transport their entire show, most stage sets, and all three generations of Duttons out West to continue the Experience in balmy Mesa, Arizona.
The Duttons first brought their show to sunny A.Z. in the winter of 2005, and have made it their permanent winter home ever since. In 2010, the Duttons partnered with East Valley High School in Mesa to renovate and update their auditorium. Come experience the new state-of-the-art lights and sounds, comfortable seating, spacious lobby, and delectable gift shop.
The Dutton Theater in Arizona boasts a more diverse lineup of shows that will keep you entertained and coming back for more variety, no matter the month. From winter to spring, the Duttons wow audiences with their collection of shows, performing holiday, traditional, and old and new favorites. Look below for more details on the variety of Dutton shows you can enjoy all season long.
“CHRISTMAS IN ARIZONA”
The Duttons will perform their Christmas show in Arizona from December 11th – December 19th, 2015. About half of the show is from their award-winning Branson show, and the other half is a collection of their personal holiday favorites. The Duttons bring stage sets, costumes, and even their kids all the way from Branson to bring in the Christmas season in true Dutton style!
After closing the holiday show, The Duttons jump right into January with the “Best of Branson” show. With state-of-the-art lighting and sounds, sets and costumes, the Duttons bring their award-winning Branson show to the Dutton Theater in Mesa.
During the month of February, the Duttons will bring in new songs, sets, and effects, as well as bring back some old favorites from years past. The show sparkles with that familiar Dutton style that seamlessly flows from one genre to another and shares their love of music with audiences..
In addition to performing tried-and-true favorites, the Dutton grandchildren use February as a testing ground for new numbers they want to add to the show. You won’t want to miss the next generation of Duttons giving their parents a run for their money with their incredible talent and showmanship!
“SPRING INTO SPRING!”
The Duttons begin preparations for the upcoming Branson season by showcasing new numbers in Arizona in March. This “Spring Into Spring” show allows the Duttons to solidify which numbers will work best for the Branson show. Sometimes they have so much new material to try that audiences are lucky enough to enjoy an entirely different show from the beginning of March to the end!
March is also an excellent time to see special guests at the theater. The Duttons’ oldest daughter, Jenny, will often make a special visit during the month, and Abigail, who holds down the Branson fort while the rest of the family winters in Mesa, will often visit at the end of March to help prepare the final Branson show. As you can see, March is an excellent month to return to the Mesa theater before the Duttons leave till next winter.
