The Original Dancing with the Stars of Branson
Is Back and Bigger than Ever

Branson, Missouri – For the second year in a row, Bob Nichols will produce this successful fundraiser as a community service for all the children of the Branson area. Building upon the success of last year’s event, Bob will be joined on stage by an impressive lineup of community figures and Branson Stars. The entire community is invited to participate by attending this annual fundraising favorite. This year, the event will be held on February 16 at the Dick Clark American bandstand Theater, home to Legends in Concert.

In February of last year, Nichols produced the original “Dancing with the Stars of Branson” at another theatre and has moved it this year to accommodate the second season growth. Tom Boyce, of Boyce Construction, and Shanda Watts-Stringer, a local professional dancer, were the winners of Branson’s very first Mirror Ball Trophy provided by The Sign Man of Branson. The Vacation Channel is, again, a major sponsor this year, providing the video packages that play during the show. TVC will be airing the entire production at a future date on Branson Sudden Link cable channel 6, as it did in 2010.

Dancing for this year’s fund raising efforts will be Branson Entertainers Kevin Knudsen, from SIX; Jim Barber, Hamner Barber Theatre; Buck Heard, Rock-U-Mentally; J Fotsch from Power 96.5 in Springfield; Billie Naioti, a local designer; Bill Tirone from the Hilton; Officer Kip Teitsort from Branson High School and BHS Senior, Lavetta VanBuren. Our Celebrity Judges will be Tony Orlando, Steve Willoughby, Paul Harris and Michelle Willadsen. And our Second Annual Mirror Ball Trophy will be presented by Mayor Raeanne Presely.

The show will begin at 7 PM with an exclusive VIP “Mixer with the Stars” at 5:30 PM in the upstairs section of the Dick Clark Theater. The “Red Carpet” themed food will be supplied by Branson’s Catering Divas. The stars and pros will mix it up with the VIPS from 5:30 PM to 6:15 PM, then they will head backstage to prepare for their moment in the spotlight. The Celebrity Judges will be making comments but they will not be deciding the winner. You decide the winner of the dance contest with your votes. Each $1 donated into their specific “ballot box’ will equal one vote. The couple that earns the most money for our causes will win the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy.

Benefitting from this year’s fundraising efforts will be the Branson Arts Council and BHS Project Graduation. Two very important organizations that provide services for the children of our local community, in and around Branson and the Tri-Lakes area. Our local Arts Council is responsible for bringing cultural and artistic opportunities to the children of our community through programs that occur all year. The Educational Youth Symphony, Hands on Clay, Cultural Kaleidescope, Summer Theatre Workshop, Milk & Cookies and more. BHS Project Graduation keeps our high school seniors safe on graduation night.

Tickets are only $10 and are available now at the Dick Clark American Bandstand Theater Box office, or by calling 417-339-3003. More information is also available at www.DancingWithTheStarsOfBranson.com
