Red, Hot…& Blue!
Seventeen Years and Still Going Strong at the
Clay Cooper Theatre!
Red, Hot…& Blue! may have been around Branson for 17 years, but this show was actually born in a small college town, Norman, Oklahoma! The producer was and still is Christopher Tucker, and back then the show was known as Christopher & Co., featuring the 1920’s all the way up through the 1990’s! Chris had an eye for perfection and always had a plan for the show to get better than the year before. He met his friend, Tina Cooper, as she was auditioning for musicals at the University of Oklahoma, and soon the two collaborated, making Christopher & Co. one of a kind, with high energy singing, dancing, and even a little comedy!
Scott Sartain came aboard after working a summer job with Chris in Shangri-La. The show was a hit in Oklahoma as the cast of six performed for several special events including Miss Norman and Miss OU Pageants, OU School of Music Recruitment Banquets, as well as Family reunions, specialty entertainment at country clubs across Oklahoma, and special performances at Tinker AFB. When graduation took place, the cast separated with hopes of meeting back up to do special “reunion performances”. But little did they know, something much bigger was in store for them!
Tina received a job in Nashville while Chris and Scott took jobs on a cruise ship. The next audition took Chris and Scott to the heart of Branson with Radio City and the Rockettes! After much discussion, the two decided to bring back the show as co-producers, and changed the name of Christopher & Co. to Red, Hot…& Blue! Tina came to visit them, and before you know it, the three of them were performing the show that brought them together in the beginning!
Red, Hot…& Blue! has been the guest entertainment on several Holland America Cruises as well as toured the USA and has been featured performers with two live symphony orchestras . This incredible show has also won several awards including Best Costumes, Best Breakfast Show, and Best Dancers. If you get a chance, take a morning or afternoon and enjoy this high energy show at The Clay Cooper Theatre! They will have you laughing, crying, singing along, and maybe even dancin’ in your seat as you hear some of the great songs from yesterday!
