Branson 94 min - Tulsa Premiere

Branson, Missouri’s 108 live shows attract seven million visitors a year. With that kind of business, it’s not surprising to find performers of every ilk trying to make it big in this little city tucked away in the scenic Ozark Mountains of southern Missouri’s bible belt. Director Brent Meeske follows the performers of three acts playing at a Branson strip mall—two in actual theaters and one in the food court—through all the ups and downs of three seasons. Offstage, they wait tables, sell gadgets at mall kiosks, perform for tips or meals, and sell CDs at gas stations—all just to make ends meet.

Producers: Ben Cooley, Brent Meeske, Charlie Mason, Jack Black, Justin Moore-Lewy
