“Down Home Country Christmas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Saw morning on Nov 29. Great entertainment. Very talented cast. This show is as good or better as any in Branson. Smaller personal theater, maybe 500 seats. All good, comfortable and roomy. Todays show was packed. Highly recommend. Good value. If you like Branson style shows you will not be disappointed.

“Good show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

We have been to many musicals, we had been seeing this show advertised, and decided to take in dinner at Pattis and then do the 7:00 Christmas variety show. The show is good, kinda putting me to sleep, it's 25 degrees outside and it's cold in this theater!!! They should have more heat, also have to go outside in the cold to go to the bathrooms!! It's a good show but I probably won't come back

“Great Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

I saw "Sanders Family Christmas" last week, nd it was such great fun. The entire cast was wonderful, reaching out with real emotion and heartfelt, close harmony Gospel singing. The theatre is comfortable with good sight lines, and they use mikes, so you don't miss a word. Highly recommended.

“Christmas In The Air”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Our Sunday School group visited the Badgett Playhouse to help each of us get into the Christmas Spirit. The Christmas Variety show featured music and singing from the 50's through the 90's, with 5 talented singer/dancers and a very capable 5-piece band to provide the music. And some of the band members were just as good singing as they were on their instruments. It was a sell-out crowd on a Saturday afternoon, which is not that uncommon for this very popular entertainment destination.

“Great Entertainment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

The Variety Show is wonderful. The Hee Haw skits, songs, and jokes was a nice reminder of how my family used to spend our Saturday nights together. Great cast! Thank you!!!
