One of the best things about Branson, Missouri, is the wide variety of things to do while you’re here on vacation. If you’re looking for a family-friendly show with amazing music and dancing, then a trip to see The Hughes Music Show at the Hughes Brothers Theater is in order!
Brothers Marty, Jason, Adam, Ryan, and Andy were raised by musical parents and have been performing together for almost 30 years, since youngest brother Andy was only 2 years old. All five of the brothers are between 30 and 40 years of age and have been performing together most of their lives. The brothers’ wives are also experienced and talented singers, dancers, or actors and have been performing with the brothers for the past 20 years. As the Hughes family has grown, so has the cast of the show. There are now 45 members of the family performing in some way or another!
The Hughes Brothers Theatre is centrally located on Branson’s Highway 76 Strip, and the family has been performing there six days a week since the year 2000. For over 15 years their show has reflected the family’s commitment to excellence when it comes to their productions. They arrange all of their own music and they even have their own recording studio and label.
It showcases top-notch music, beautiful costumes, and graceful dancing. The show’s live band is comprised of some of Branson’s finest musicians, and their incredible skill is one of the things that sets It apart from the crowd. The true centerpiece is the Hughes Brothers themselves. The brothers harmonize in a way only family can, and they lend their voices to favorites from throughout the ages. Whether it’s the oldies we all know and love, this generation’s pop and rock songs, Broadway show tunes, or country music greats, the Hughes Brothers and their family prove they can master just about any style of music! The talent also runs in the family, since over 20 of the brothers’ combined children are also in the show. The Hughes children all play instruments, sing, and dance, just like their parents! A particularly special segment of the show features the kids showcasing their prodigious violin skills and taking part in an old-fashioned melodrama.
Arrive at the Hughes Brothers Theatre early to enjoy their delicious dinner before the show starts. This extravagant meal starts off with a fresh garden salad and moves on to the main course, which is a choice of either savory seasoned pork loin in a specialty garlic cream marinara sauce or succulent chicken breast with mushrooms and artichoke hearts. Sides include sautéed potatoes, roasted green beans, and a roll, and the meal is topped off with champagne cake frosted with white chocolate and drizzled with strawberry sauce. Parents shouldn’t worry about finding something for their kids to eat, because the folks at the Hughes Brothers Theatre have thought of everything with their special kids’ meal. The children’s meal consists of breaded chicken strips, crisp oven-baked French fries, green beans, and a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie. Nobody in your family will leave dinner hungry!
