Chubby Checker

The new Icon Theatre in Branson MO is now open for business. For the 2012 show season, this theatre is hosting four fabulous shows – Jukebox Journey, The Rat Pack: Live and Swingin’, The World Famous Platters of Branson and Chubby Checker.

Jukebox Journey takes guests on a journey through the 50s and 60s as a talented group of musicians and singers perform some of the biggest hits from that time. Chart toppers like Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Brenda Lee, Chuck Berry, Connie Francis, Jerry Lee Lewis and the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll – Elvis Presley – are all paid tribute. Jukebox Journey is a matinee show, performing at 2pm.
The Rat Pack: Live and Swingin’ is an amazing tribute show featuring the likeness of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. This show will transport audiences back to the swinging days of the Copa Room in Las Vegas. Experience The Rat Pack and classic Sinatra songs live at the Icon Theatre.
Audiences will want to relive the romance with The Platters as they stroll down memory lane. This outstanding vocal group performs some of their classic hits, such as “Only You,” “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes,” “Twilight Time,” and “My Prayer.” The glory days of Motown are brought to life on stage during this fantastic show.
The headliner of the theatre is Chubby Checker, known for his high-energy, unforgettable songs and dance hits such as his landmark ’60s-era “The Twist.” Checker not only performs but demonstrates the famed “Twist” as well as “The Pony”, “The Fly” and “The Hucklebuck,” the foundations for all modern Rock ‘n Roll dance styles. He will perform 8pm shows November and December.
