There are a number of Branson shows for people that don’t like country music, ranging from dancing to animals to magic and more. Still not convinced? Check out a few of our favorites listed below. There is sure to be something your whole family will enjoy!
Branson Shows for People That Don’t Like Country Music
Animal lovers, rejoice! This one is perfect for the whole family. Amazing Pets features over 30 trained dogs, cats (who knew a cat could be trained?), birds, and more. These extraordinary pets are sure to charm you with their circus-like acrobatics. Trainer Valery Tsoreav—who you may recognize from the film Big Fish—has taught these animals tricks you may have once thought were impossible. Book tickets for this show and you are certainly in store for some furry fun.
This show boasts six brothers/musicians using only one “instrument”—their voices! Thousands of guests make their way to SIX for incredible singing, dancing, and humor. The brothers’ harmonies are stunning, and their stage presence is just as impressive. OK, so there’s no guarantee a country song won’t slip in, but SIX is renowned for its variety. The group has impressed audiences with songs from MC Hammer, Elvis, Coldplay, Tom Jones, and more. There is truly something for everyone in this show.
ACROBATS OF CHINA
“Impressive” is an understatement when it comes to this show. The Jinan Troupe will dazzle you with their acrobatic feats and magnificent performance art. Between the costumes, the dancing, and the acrobatics, you won’t be able to pick your favorite part of Acrobats of China. With this show, you’ll get to experience entertainment and culture!
WAKE UP WITH YAKOV
Comedian Yakov Smirnoff has become a Branson staple! Yakov is quite the humorist. Raised in Soviet Russia, he has a wealth of fascinating, hilarious tales from his past, as well as sharp, witty observations about culture in his beloved adopted country. He’s been in America for decades, where he has had great success with standup, writing, and acting—you may recognize him from films such as Brewster’s Millions or The Money Pit. This all-ages show is a morning one, beginning at 10:00am and lasting around 2 hours. With this show, you’ll start your start your day the right way—by laughing!
PUTTIN ON THE RITZ
Yearning for the past? Puttin’ on the Ritz brings audiences the classic glamour of the 1920s and 1930s with costumes and songs of the era. You’ll hear oldies from Gershwin, Porter, and more, and may even mistake the dancers for the real Fred and Ginger! There is some serious talent in this timeless show, making it a must-see.
We couldn’t possibly cover everything, so take a look for yourself! There are just as many Branson shows for people that don’t like country music as there are for people that can’t get enough of it.
