The “good news” is that Branson, Missouri, often referred to as the “Live music show capital of the world,” has dozens of shows of every type and variety to pick from every day. The “bad news,” in terms of deciding which show to see and when, is that Branson has dozens of shows of every type and variety to pick from every day. How to pick the type of show one wants to see, a particular show or performer and a specific time can seem daunting, but help is available.
Just about every organization involved in tourism and selling Branson show tickets publishes a list of Branson shows. An excellent example of this type of list is the Branson Show Schedule published by the Branson Tourism Center (BTC), one of Branson’s largest and most respected vacation planning services and sellers of Branson show and attraction tickets and lodging, on its website www.BransonTourismCenter.com.
Like most Branson showschedules the BTC scheduloe is sorted alphabetically and contains a link to other information for the shows listed such as prices, an indication of whether or not the performance is a limited engagement and if the tickets are discounted all on the main page. In addition, the link from the main show entry for each show contains additional information such as the description of the show, schedules, pricing, pictures and, in a lot of cases, videos.
Although these types of schedules provide a lot of information, in most cases it will take additonal time and effort to research show times, types, prices and other information on a particular show. However, another feature of the Branson Tourism Center Show Schedule is the inclusion of an 800 telephone number, 1-800-785-1550, which will provide the assistance of a trained BTC Travel Specialist who will provide personal help in answering questions and getting Branson show information. There is no charge or obligation incurred for this assistance.
Another tool that can make it easy to get the information needed to make Branson show decisions and selections is provided by the search engines on web sites such as www.BransonOnTheWeb.com. This site enables the search of the dozens of Branson shows available in Branson on any given day to quickly and conveniently narrow the choices down to those meeting the needs of a specific visitor.
If a person was interested in comedy during the evening of October 15, finding just the right show is only a few clicks away. On the home page of www.BransonOnTheWeb.com, they would select the starting date of October 15, comedy, and a starting time of 6:00 p.m. from the appropriate drop down menus. From the 70 plus shows available in Branson on October 15 the search result will be a list of nine shows that are either comedy shows or feature comedy such as Jim Stafford, Presleys’ Country Jubilee, Pierce Arrow and Hamner and Barber to name a few. From that point finding the ideal comedy show to meet your needs will hopefully be a simpler process.
Paul Miller, General Manager for the Branson Tourism Center says, “With more people using the internet to get information and make travel decisions, we realize, with all the choices available in Branson, that many people will still want to talk with a real person. That’s why we provide the free no obligation assistance of a trained BTC Travel/Reservation Specialist through 800 numbers, 1-800-785-1550 for www.BransonTourismCenter.com and 1-800-785-1665 for www.BransonOnTheWeb.com.”
