Popular Show Ran in Branson for 23 Years
March 27, 2007
For over two decades, the Braschler Music Show has been an important part of the Branson entertainment scene. Now after 23 years, The Braschler Music Show has officially announced it will close. Although it was not an easy decision, the Braschler family, cast and crew felt it was the right time to end the show. The show received many awards through the years, including several Gospel Group of the Year honors. Of the closing, Show Owner Rex G. Weiss stated that, “Although we saw a dramatic turnaround in business these past two years, and 2007 looked very good, many other factors helped determine this action.”
The staff and management of The Hamner Barber Theater wish to express their gratitude to all involved with the show, and will miss working with them on a daily basis. In particular, they wish to thank Rex and Sherri Weiss who were dedicated to keeping the show running, even through challenging times. The Braschler Show was highly entertaining, inspirational, and featured an exceptional cast of talented musicians and singers who always put personal values ahead of professional ambitions. Their decision to close the show was not an easy one, and we wish everyone involved much success in their future endeavors.
Many thanks of support are offered to the local citizens and fans who supported The Braschlers in their decision to always maintain their personal integrity. The Braschlers also wish to express their appreciation for the support of the Hamner Barber Theater where they are finishing their musical journey. Matriarch of the family, Jan Braschler, will continue her role as the theater box office manager, a position she has held since the theater was built in 1995.
The departure of the Braschlers will not affect the current performance schedules of our other two shows, The Hamner Barber Variety Show and Ricky Boen & Texas Mud. There are no immediate plans to bring in a new show to fill the afternoon vacancy left by the Braschlers.
