Dutton Family Theater

This theater in the heart of Branson’s entertainment district features the famous Dutton Family’s singing, dancing and music from varied musical instruments. 

Find the Dutton Family Theater along the Strip, the lively theater district in the city of Branson, Missouri. Discover a great show with the whole Dutton Family and talented guests playing guitar, violin, drums, keyboard, bass and even banjo and mandolin. In addition to playing all those instruments, the Duttons sing and dance in a crowd-pleasing show known as the Dutton Experience.

Learn the inspiring story of Dean and Sheila Dutton and how they left their ordinary lives behind to shift to careers as part of a family music team. When they married and had children, they were not professional musicians. Dean was a professor of economics and their children started music lessons as a way of learning discipline and hard work. In 1991 the family finally decided to make a brave move and pursue music as their livelihood. Enjoy the live act of what is now a group of fantastic artists who perform more than 300 shows a year and own a theater, a hotel, a restaurant and a gift shop in Branson, plus another theater in Mesa, Arizona.  

The entertaining show is fully produced by the family, from the creative ideas to the choreography, musical arrangement, technical support and marketing. Listen to Tim, the most instrumentally versatile of Dean and Sheila’s children. He plays classical guitar and electric guitar, bass, violin, viola, cello, banjo, harmonica, jaw harp, piano and drums and mandolin, his personal favorite. Have fun watching a performance by Jon, who brings the comedy element into the show. His wife Belle is a dancer from the Samoan Islands and performs in the show together with their children.  

While you are visiting the Dutton Family Theater, be sure to stop off at Abby’s Tourist Trap, the gift shop. Buy snacks and ice cream plus fun souvenirs with Dutton and Branson themes. Taste the famous in-house fudge that comes in delicious flavors and is a popular souvenir from a Dutton Experience visit. 

Drive to the Dutton Family Theater on the Strip, the famous road in Branson that features most of the city’s entertainment theaters.
