Nobody celebrates a family Christmas better than the Hughes Brothers and their families. If you are looking for that boost into the holiday spirit, see their Christmas Show. If you saw the summer “it” show, this Christmas show is fresh and different.

This season there are even more Hughes kids in the family and that number keeps growing. The usher that showed you to your seat will be on stage singing and dancing in just a few minutes. More than 50 family members fill the stage when the whole family appears. Every Hughes kid plays a part, including the role of baby Jesus and the littlest shepherd.

The oldest kids are talented musicians. Each teen shares their talents on the violin, in amazing dance routines, drum and guitar. The high energy two hour show is packed with Christmas songs galore. Even Mama Hughes’s traditional Swedish cookies are for sale during intermission.

Many Branson shows offer their regular show the first half then, sing Christmas music the second half. The Hughes Brothers Christmas Show is a holiday celebration through and through. Santa explains the symbols of Christmas.

The Hughes Brother’ wives share their many talents in musical production, dancing, singing and even heartwarming ballet. Brothers Marty, Jason, Adam, Ryan, and Andy are married to Cindy, Mara,Vikki, Carina, and Becky, respectively.

Hughes’ have been entertaining Branson audiences for 16 years. Many guests come year after year, watching the family grow and the kids grow up. The “World’s Largest Performing Family” is also one of the biggest casts in Branson.

Been There?
If the location is familiar to Branson regulars, that’s because the theatre was once the Roy Clark Celebrity Theatre. Roy Clarks’ hand prints and a gold star are still at the entryway, between the front doors.

Built in 1983, The Roy Clark Celebrity Theatre is an important part of Branson History. Roy Clark was the first music star to build his own theatre in Branson. A trail of celebrity performers followed. Many of whom first performed at the Roy Clark Celebrity Theatre in Branson

The theatre is Branson landmark. Not only was the theatre the home and showplace for the country county music legend Roy Clark.

In 1983, Clark opened the Roy Clark Celebrity Theatre in Branson, becoming the first country music star to have his own venue here, and beginning a trend which led to Branson becoming a center of live music performance, as it is today.

Many of the celebrities who have played in Branson first entertained at the Roy Clark Celebrity Theatre. Clark frequently played at the theatre during the 1980s and 1990s. Branson was on it’s way to becoming the “live music capital of the entire universe,” as Morley Safer said on 60 minutes.

Now owned by and named for the Hughes Brothers, the theatre carries the tradition of first rate family entertainment in Branson.
