Next March, the Haygoods will have a new theater to call home.
The seven brothers and one sister between the ages of 15 and 31 will move to the Americana Theatre on 76 Country Boulevard following a $500,000 renovation.
“We are adding 3,800 square feet with the front of the theater enclosed with black glass,” said Timothy Haygood, the oldest brother.
Back in September, the family announced its Branson run at Music City Centre would end this year, but that has all changed.
After 10,000 performances in front of more than four million people, the family decided that Branson was the place to stay.
“We had an offer to do a television show in Los Angeles, it was going to take a big commitment from us so we decided to form our own production company and do our own show,” said Haygood.
Haygood said it will be a reality-type show, making musical dreams come true for youngsters who don’t have the means to do it.
“We’ll be filming segments of the show right there at the Americana Theatre,” Haygood said.
The CW network will air the show in the midwest.
The Haygoods won’t be the only show moving to the Americana Theatre from the Music City Centre.
“After we announced our move, Tony Roi and the Red Hot and Blue show decided to come along,” Haygood said.
Another Haygood, Timothy’s wife Cassandre, will move from Silver Dollar City to the Americana Theatre with her show “Voice of an Angel” featuring a string orchestra.
The Haygoods kicked off their musical careers at Silver Dollar City 17 years ago.
“We are so proud to be investing in our community and we can’t wait for everyone to see the newly remodeled Americana Theatre. It will be a great addition to the strip,” Timothy Haygood said.
