Dutton Customer Appreciation Day – September 30, 2011

Branson, MO…The Dutton Family is holding a Customer Appreciation Day on Friday, September 30th to celebrate their fans as part of their 20th Anniversary Show celebration.

According to marketing manager Judith Dutton, “This is much more than the typical appreciation show! Festivities begin in front of the theater at 6:30 PM with refreshments at our “Dutton Party in the Parking Lot”. The Dutton’s 20th Anniversary Show at 8 PM, complete with door prizes that include vacation packages for the Dutton Inn, gift certificates for Abby’s Tourist Trap, tickets for The Duttons and George Dyer shows, and much more.”

Over the past 20 years, the Dutton fame has spread across the world and the family has built an entertainment complex in Branson with their Dutton Family Theater, the Dutton Inn, and Abby’s Tourist Trap. Additionally, the Dutton Family Theater #2 was opened this past year in Mesa, Arizona for winter performances. In 2007, the Duttons gained even greater national acclaim as they made it into the Top 10 finalists on America’s Got Talent.

In 1999 Boxcar Willie offered his theater for their show, which was renamed to the Dutton Family Theater in 2000 and purchased by the family in 2001. Since then the theater has been modernized with a renovated lobby, state of the art digital sound system, significantly upgraded heating and ventilation, and new stage flooring. Additionally, the family operates the Dutton Inn directly behind the theater and Abby’s Tourist Trap next to the theater on Highway 76.

To celebrate two decades as professional entertainers, all of the Duttons wanted to create a very special, high-energy anniversary show for their fans by bringing back the crowd favorites from over the past 20 years. From bluegrass to classical, country to rock ‘n roll, clogging to comedy, the show has been receiving rave reviews as one of the highest energy shows in Branson. The singing and dancing is literally non-stop in this highly choreographed extravaganza with a liberal sprinkling of humor. Look for such favorites as Splish-Splash, Mr. Sandman, Rocky Top, Cotton-Eyed Joe, This Little Light of Mine, Dueling Banjos, Vivaldi, I Saw the Light, a Beach Boys medley including Fun, Fun, Fun, Til Her Daddy Takes the T-Bird Away, Blue Moon, and much, much more.

Last year Ben Dutton created a comic sensation with his identical twin cousin from Spain, Julio. This year Julio auditions for a part in the show by bringing the missing musical ingredient to the stage – horns. But in this case, he doesn’t blow the horns, he wears them and fires up the audience with a unique rendition of the Julio Iglesias (his namesake) song “To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before”.

This year, as part of the celebration, The Duttons have taken their show to several communities around the country in Texas, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Utah, and Arizona among others. Most recently, they packed up the show and put it on board a Holland America cruise to Alaska. “Alaska was the last state in our country that we hadn’t performed in,” said Sheila Dutton. “What a great time for us to go there as part of our 20 years in entertainment!”

In honor of their 20th Anniversary show, the Duttons are offering tickets for this special show for a special box office rate of $20 + tax. For reservations and additional information, contact the Dutton Family Theater at (417) 332-2772 or (888) 388-8661, or visit
