2013 because they will no longer be in Branson after this season. With heavy
hearts we will bid adieu to Tony Orlando’ s Great American Christmas, Tony
Orlando’s Yellow Ribbon Salute during Veterans’ Homecoming Nov 11,
Sight &, Sound’s® monumental
Joseph!, (which in 2014 will be replaced by the spectacular Jonah)
the epic Miracle of Christmas, which will close indefinitely after
December) and The Hamner Barber Variety Show!
The Magic &, Comedy of Taylor Reed has mysteriously vanished, yet will
return in May, 2014…Jim Barber’s departure at the end of the 2013 season
will bring to a close the popular Hamner Barber Variety Show, yet will
give birth to Unbelievable, an ambitious new production starring
award-winning magicians The Hamners.
