| With gas prices so high, how is a family supposed to be able to take a trip on a budget? A great family town is Branson, Missouri, full of entertaining things to do that will keep you and your family busy. Even better is that you can make it there on one tank of gas. There are so many different shows that you can see and choose from at all different times of the day. It can be overwhelming trying to find a great family show that won’t empty your retirement fun especially if you have a few kids.
The one show that my family loved the best and by far was the most reasonable priced was the Magnificent Seven Variety Show starring Joe Tinoco and Tamra Holden at the White House Theatre. It was patriotic that made you proud to be an American, funny and entertaining with “pretty dresses”, said my four year old at the time. My family was entertained and mesmerized by the whole show, not one fight or argument broke out between them. It was enjoyed by all, especially me. This by far was one of the best shows that we have seen. We still enjoy it on DVD, and it was very popular with my mother and others at the Hospice House when we brought it by.
An added bonus was before the show was an option to choose a fabulous four course meal before the show for just $9.95. The meal included a delicious prime rib and chicken breast, homemade bread, mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables, gourmet cake, iced tea and coffee. Also an incredible value is that kids under 11 are free to the show with a children’s meal of chicken tenders, fry, salad and dessert for $6. We couldn’t believe how good the meal was and to match it we would have spend more money at a nice restaurant and not even included a show which we think is one of the top shows in Branson.
It was great to meet all the stars at intermission and at the end of show. We have many fond memories of this and plan on attending this show every time we return to Branson.
