About The Osmonds
The Osmonds are an all-American family music group that gained popularity in the early 1970's. The original group was made up of brothers Alan, Wayne, Merrill and Jay. In 1962, their father took them to audition for the Lawrence Welk Show, but Welk refused to hear them so a trip to Disneyland followed to ease the disappointment. There, the brothers gave an impromptu concert with a barbershop quartet and were signed as regular nighttime performers. Soon after, they made their national television debut on the Andy Williams Show and performed regularly until it was canceled. Although the siblings have disbanded, they continue to perform and advance their solo careers. Jimmy, Jay, and Merrill are featured in the Andy Williams Christmas Variety Show.
About The Lennon Sisters
The Lennon Sisters are an American vocal group that was discovered when their high school classmate, Larry Welk (Lawrence Welk's son) brought the four sisters to sing at Lawrence's bedside when he was sick. Welk was so impressed that he booked the group to appear on The Lawrence Welk Show that same week. The quartet's 1955 television debut led consistent appearances on The Lawrence Welk Show until 1968 when they left to start their own career as a group. In the 1970's, The Lennon Sisters performed regularly on the Andy Williams Show and made appearances on several game shows, including Family Feud, Tattletales, and The Hollywood Squares. From 1994 through 2004, the quartet headlined at the Welk Champagne Theater in Branson. In 1987, the Lennon Sisters received a Hollywood Walk of Fame Star, and in 2001 they were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame. The group currently consists of trio Mimi, Janet, and Kathy.
About Andy Williams
In the early 1960's, Andy Williams was the star of his own weekly television show, The Andy Williams Show. The show won three Emmy Awards for Outstanding Variety Program. Eventually, Andy cut back and reduced his show to three specials per year and the Andy Williams Christmas specials became highly popular. He recorded eight Christmas albums and with the huge and lasting popularity of his Christmas special, he became affectionately known as 'Mr. Christmas.'
About the Moon River Theatre
After Andy's brother invited him for a visit to the beautiful Ozark Mountains of Branson, Missouri, Andy decided to build his own theatre in Branson. On May 1, 1992, Andy became the first non-country entertainer to open a theatre in Branson when he opened the stunning Andy Williams Moon River Theatre, named after his signature song, 'Moon River.' Thereafter, throughout the months of November and December, Andy hosted his annual Andy Williams Christmas Show at the theatre. The venue has also hosted big names like The Osmonds, Pat Benatar, Glen Campbell and more. The 48,000-square-foot building sits on 16 acres of beautifully landscaped property with waterfalls and a rippling stream. It is the only theatre to ever be featured in Architectural Digest.
