Branson Area Appreciation Time
Springtime heralds the arrival of new shows in Branson, Missouri. For Shell Knob and Table Rock Lake residents, that means discounted ticket prices. Discounted prices are called Area Appreciation shows and are offered to locals to make up for residents experiencing additional traffic and congestion during the height of tourist season, which I, as a realtor in Shell Knob appreciate.
The window of opportunity to see shows at reduced prices is short, usually less than a week, but various offerings are spread out for most of the month of March. It is a little like seeing a dress rehearsal . It gives the shows a chance to perfect new acts, etc. Prices can range from bringing two cans of food for a charity event, to paying between $5.00 - $20 for your ticket.
I passed on the opportunity last week to take in Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede, a dinner show for an area price of $14.00. We did however, decide to check out the Starlite Theatre's "Lost in the 50's" show, featuring The Platters. Great show! The Platters quartet brought back alot of the oldies but goodies, as well as doing one portion on the 'Motown' sound. Mellow. The youthful performers who did the bulk of the singing and dancing were outstanding, with the lead singers being exceptionally talented. This was well worth our $5.00.
Had a great bread-bowl filled with onion soup at the Panera Bread Company for lunch. Stopped at a couple of the discount malls, and made our way home enjoying the flowers and trees starting to bud, as we rolled thru the Ozark hills.
Just another benefit to living here in the spring.
