from Shoji Tabuchi Show
Just what is the Shoji Tabuchi Show that everyone loving American music is raving about? The Shoji Tabuchi Show is an astounding state-of-the-art variety production rivaling the pure excitement of Las Vegas or New York. At its heart is Branson, Missouri's first family of extraordinary musical entertainment - Shoji Tabuchi, his beautiful wife Dorothy, and delightful daughter Christina.

This fabulous family production consists of an excellent sampling of Shoji's world-renowned fiddle mastery and showmanship as an entertainer; his wife Dorothy's gifted abilities as the show's creator, producer and director; and daughter Christina's talented addition as dancer and vocalist.

Comprised of music and dance of virtually every style, including country, gospel, Cajun, big band, show tunes, the 50s, and classical with cultural experiences such as fantasy visits to Hawaii, Mardi Gras, and Broadway, this show has something for everyone. Plus, marvel at a Japanese tribute featuring a giant dragon, a unique display of 26 Taiko drums, a breathtaking array of authentic Japanese costuming, flags and music, and a fascinating duet with Shoji and Christina singing in the Japanese language!

The show has special surprises and effects sprinkled throughout, such as animated laser light shows, clowns on a fire truck, confetti showers, balloons and bubbles, electronic fireworks, a black light presentation, and so much more—it will leave you breathless.

November 1st - December 9th, enjoy the Wonder of Christmas! It has the excitement of a Broadway show – featuring blazing violins, stunning costumes, amazing harmonies, big band sound and world-class choreography. From the time the first singers and dancers take the stage until the final curtain closes, the joy and wonder of the holiday season come to life.

All this and more is showcased in a theater often called the "Showplace of Branson." Its decor is reminiscent of the grand theater palaces of the 1930's. Even the restrooms have awed visitors. The ladies' powder room and gentlemen's lounge are renowned for their decor including fresh cut orchids, paintings, antiques, and even a billiard table.

Dorothy Tabuchi and Christina Tabuchi appear on select dates only.

The Shoji Tabuchi Show... now "That's Entertainment" not soon to be forgotten!

"Amazing entertainment in Branson"
July, 2016
We've seen many shows in Branson. Shoji's one of the best. It's amazing -the show's presentation of basically only 4 entertainers and a band. You'll enjoy it.
Tip: Be ready to relax. This is what we all want when we vacation. If you follow the colored routes -it's also super easy to get around in this vacation destination.

Went to his show about a month ago and it was excellent. Haven't saw him in three or four years he just gets better every time we see him. His prices are cheaper than they used to be also.

We enjoyed this show very much and did not want it to end. Mr. Tabuchi is so talented and funny, we enjoyed all of his music and comedy, in addition to his daughter and the many other singers/dancers included in the show.
Tip: Just get set to have a great time!

We truly enjoyed the Shoji Tabuci show. There was a great variety of entertainers, music and instruments played. We highly recommend it and now understand why it is currently called the BEST show in Branson.
Tip: Plan ahead to make sure you get the shows you want. Plenty of good resturants and places to stay.

"Great Show"
November, 2015
This show is well worth seeing and is entertaining for all ages. We had a five year old with us and he really really enjoyed the show. We had not seen the show for about 15 years and I was thinking there is no way it is still as good, but it certainly was.
Tip: Go to be entertained.

We traveled with a group and some had seen before; it was recommended and now with an ALL NEW show it was outstanding! His daughter Christina is very involved and very talented; Shoji is truly amazing in the many genres he covers with his playing; the show has been around for awhile but is always Fresh and of course the famously decorated Bathroom is something to see!!

Shoji has been in this theater for years and we had high expectations. While his violin performances and costume changes were first-rate, his singing was not. His daughter performs ok, but trotting the granddaughter out on stage was ridiculous. We do NOT recommend.

While touring Branson, we went to the Shoji Tabuchi Theater. Shoji was terrific and the experience amazing. The show was excellent and the bathrooms beautiful. Shoji was so humble about his citizenship and how blessed he was to become a United States citizen. As a American Citizen we don't always appreciate the freedoms and dreams that we have here. Shoji revieled how his dreams transformed when he came to America. His daughter and himself took pictures and signed autographs. Would like to see the Christmas show, and would highly reccomend seeing the show while in Branson.
