THE DUTTONS WELCOME THE BLACKWOODS TO THE DUTTON FAMILY THEATER
BrPigeon Forge Stars Join Ranks with The Duttons and the All Hands on Deck Show
Branson, MO: The Duttons are thrilled to announce the addition of The Blackwoods to their theater schedule for 2017.
“We are so excited to have the Blackwoods in our theater,” said Timothy Dutton, General Manager. “The Blackwoods are a part of country music and gospel history and we feel honored that they are bringing their show to us.”
The Blackwoods are known throughout gospel music circles for their pure family harmony, excellent musicianship, and first class entertainment. With an 80 year track record of hits, The Blackwoods bring hand-clapping, high energy entertainment to the stage. To quote a recent fan, “The show is American, family, loyalty and excellence all rolled into two hours that will leave you spellbound!”
The show is a stroll down memory lane with history and video of the original Blackwood Brothers and the Blackwood singers and the songs that made them a household name. A rousing veteran’s tribute is always a part of the show as is that feeling of family that audience members experience this great performance.
With that in mind, the Blackwoods sound very excited about the opportunity to be at The Duttons. Said Donna Blackwood, “What better theater for us to go to than this one with another group who has the same professional and family values at their theater. Add to the mix the amazing “All Hands on Deck Show” that celebrates our country and our veterans. Well, we couldn’t feel more at home.”
The Blackwoods will open their season at the Dutton Family Theater on February 9, 2017. The Duttons will open April 5, 2017 and All Hands on Deck will open April 7th. For tickets and information, please contact the Dutton Family theater at 417-332-2772.
