didn't Shoji start out in that theater down the hill from the Olive Garden, seem to remember something like that??

how's those ad's go? Presley's longest running theater on the 76 strip.... Baldknobbers always say longest running show in Branson.

another question might be who's had the most theater's.... Kirby maybe? Moe Bandy?

not a complete history but this is what I believe I know regarding the acts that have been in the Branson Star Theatre:

building was constructed in 1984 as a classic auto museum
converted to a theatre and housed:
Mel Tillis
Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard
Loretta Lynn
Have seen pictures of the marquee from the next few years but cannot read the entire names...seems to indicate "Cirque" and "Acrobats" but cannot confirm those.
SHOJI Tabuchi
Yakov Smirnoff
Kirby Van Burch
Breaking Up is Hard to Do, David Lomascola, Branson Blast!, Music Makes the World Go 'Round
Keith "Red" Allen, The Keatings, Rock N Roll Is Here To Stay, Penny Gilley

This theatre currently and at some times in the past consists of two stages so I am certain that I am missing other performers that have called this theatre home. We expect to have exciting announcements soon for 2010

The Texan's theatre was located next to the Big Red Barn shop. Also, I thought the Foogy River Boys were located nearer to where the old Americana Theatre is.

This is one of the theaters mentioned in another thread and off of the beaten path. It's for sale.

(This pic is too large just as my ornaments were. Don't know what is going on. Not doing anything differently as far as I know. Still photobucket.)

Mickey's Gilley's First Theater

Where was it located? I've read where it was destroyed by fire and then he built his current theater in 1992.
