Family travel is amazing, but sometimes you just need a little getaway as a couple. Since it’s only an hour and a half away, Jeff and I take a long weekend just for us to Branson every few months. It’s important to take couple time to connect, and we’re lucky to have my parents nearby to spoil Kristin for a weekend every now and then.

Planning a Trip

In early October, Jeff and I grabbed our calendar to see when we could squeeze in some time for us. We saw the perfect weekend in December.  I’d be finished with coaching speech for the semester, and it would before the craziness of Christmas kicked in, so we took it. As long as the all the stars aligned, including weather and health, we were taking a weekend for us. And as that weekend drew closer, we realized we were eligible to see one of our favorite shows in Branson as part of an area appreciation deal–Six. Heck yeah, we’re going!

The Theater

Six Branson, Missouri

Six is great anytime, but we happened to visit during an Ozark Mountain Christmas, so we were excited to see Six’s Christmas show.  We’d seen it a few years ago, so we knew it’d be good.  Six performs at the Hughes Brothers’ Theater, and it’s beautifully decorated at this time of year, as is most of Branson.  Click here to read more about Branson during Christmas!

This theater was originally called the Roy Clark Theater.  When I was about Kristin’s age, I saw Louise Mandrell perform at this location.  It’s fun to think about the acts that have played here before.  Now the theater hosts the Hughes Brothers and Six; both shows feature performers all from one family.  When Six performs, you can see at least one of the Six cars parked at the theater.

Six: The Show

We arrived around 7:15 p.m. for the 8:00 p.m. show.  It was chilly and drizzling, but I wanted to be sure to have time to take pictures.  It’s fun to compare our summer Branson evening show pictures with those at Christmas time.  The difference is night and day.  That’s some Branson humor.

We went inside, and the lobby was already full.  It was Friday night, and we were going to be part of a great audience!  Luckily, we purchased and picked up our area appreciation tickets earlier, so we didn’t have to wait in the ticket line.

You can purchase concessions before the show, including popcorn, but we had just eaten dinner.  There was no way I was fitting anything else in my tummy for a while.

We joined a short line to enter the theater, and we were seated house right.  We were in the middle of our section, and our location turned out to be pretty good.  If sitting closer and in the middle is a priority, be sure to buy your tickets as soon as possible.

The brothers that comprise Six put on a wonderful show. The amazing part is there aren’t any instruments.  They sing a capella and mimic instruments. One brother beat-boxes to provide the percussion in any of their upbeat songs.  I often forget that they don’t have a band accompanying them. They also sprinkle in family humor from time to time, and you’ll never have to worry that the humor is “too adult” for your kids. This show is a lot of fun!

The first half of the show included highlights of the regular season.  One section includes Beach Boys songs.

Another part includes the show-stopper, “The Sound of Silence.”The Sound of Silence Six Branson

The highlights were great!  You should definitely see this energetic show.

Soon, it was time for intermission.  We had to check the merchandise for a magnet, and we were not disappointed.  We love to add to our fridge gallery of adventures.

When intermission was over, it was Christmas time!

The Christmas lights are on, and it’s time to get festive.

Six provides a nice mixture of holiday comedy and beautiful arrangements of Christmas songs.

All too soon, the show was over.  If you’re not in a festive mood after seeing this show, I don’t know what will do it.  As we left the theater in the Christmas spirit, the cold night air reminded us of the season yet again.  I slipped my gloved hand into Jeff’s, and we navigated our way through the parking lot.  After fifteen years, I’m still a little giddy when his hand closes around mine.  When navigating my way through life’s obstacles, there’s no one else I’d rather have beside me.

      It really is amazing! You forget that they don’t have musical accompaniment.

  1. I love these shows. I thought the Branson show was a large family that did EVERYTHING they were so talented. There must be a few talented Branson family shows.

      Many of the shows in Branson feature a talented family. I think that’s why so many of the shows in Branson appeal to the entire family.

  2. Whenever we do get to take a trip, we end up going to Branson because it’s close enough that the drive isn’t terrible but different enough to be a fun trip! I love all the shows. We’re thinking about going back soon so I might look into this one!

We’re all about strengthening marriages and spending time together, just the two of you, and a weekend getaway is a fabulous way to do that! How awesome that you were able to get away during the holiday season and see this amazing Christmas show. It looked so festive and fun. I was able to feel the love vibe in your article and can relate to that ‘giddy’ feeling you experienced when Jeff took your hand. Loved it!
