"Best Christmas Show In Branson"
February, 2018
When the efforts of performers touch the heart, the spirit soars. This talented family provides such heartwarning entertainment that you are really sad the event has ended. Their passion for what they do envelopes the entire audience, show after show. Don't miss this wonderful entertainment event.

This was not the first time I attended a Hughes Brothers show in Branson. Why did I return?

"Hughes Bros. Christmas Show"
January, 2015
As the other Hughes Bros. shows we have attended, it was five + star entertainment. My wife and I loved the entire show. The entire family performing is also such a treat for us. We will continue to come back year after year and looking forward to seeing "It" this spring.

"Christmas 2014"
January, 2015
This was our first Christmas vacation to Branson, as I have always dreamed of enjoying Christmas in Branson and enjoying the attractions. This trip was focused around my daughter, who has been dealing with caring and being soul provider for her 25-yr old husband battling Stage 4 cancer since March 2014. She was so stressed from this health issue and being an elementary teacher that I just felt she needed some time away to relax and unwind. Thanks to Reserve Branson and The Hughes Brothers Show and other attractions the weekend was a success! We had perfect seats located center-front, second row to enjoy the show, which allowed us time to feel some normalcy for the holiday, enjoy laughter, inspiring music and just relax. The show was well orchestrated with a seasonal cheerfulness, message of the true meaning of the Christmas, and a carefree time for she and I to fellowship with one another. The Hughes family performed a spectacular show with such amazing talents and love was conveyed as we enjoyed the moments that passed. We are already planning a return trip and start a family Christmas tradition for the family females to enjoy together, and the Hughes Family Show will be must see!

"A real Christmas Experience"
January, 2015
Beside Silver Dollar City, we have not seen a Christmas show in Branson for many years. I must say how refreshing it was to have experienced this show. We had our son as well as two adopted mothers that joined us. Everyone raved about the show for days. The show celebrated all of the fun things about Christmas. So many beautiful costume and such talented musician / singers. The best thing about the show was it presented the greatest Christmas gift that has been ever given. So moving, so inspiring. It was definitely a great way to begin the Christmas Season. I wish I could take everyone I know to see this show.

We were extremely amazed with the talent in this show and so thankful they kept Christ in Christmas. Our daughter is 12 and she said she would like to come back every year and watch the same show. She enjoyed every part of it very much. Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

A must see show! Totally new this year. Great variety of music. This year they added a couple of country songs. There are instrumental numbers and some great dancing. The second half is Broadway Musicals. Just love watching this extremely talented family. Will see it again this year. If you like fudge be sure to buy it there. Papa Hughes fudge is made right there and all flavors are delicious but Chewy Praline is my favorite. A very enjoyable evening watching this absolutely fantastic show.

Our first show in Branson and not quite what we expected. Nice theater and nice variety of performances targeting all ages. We did not expect such a large related family of performers, including so many children. Most of the family members were quite talented and, except for a few "talking" segments that seemed to drag a bit, the show overall was good. Their emphasis on selling merchandise was a bit unsettling, but we still recommend the show.

My husband and I attended an afternoon performance. The show totally exceeded any expectations we had. The talent in this family from the youngest to the eldest is phenomenal! The wide variety of music, set and costume changes, lighting and special effects, and nonstop action was fantastic. How refreshing to see several generations interacting and performing together. The show was well worth the price; we will be back for their Christmas show.

"Amazing Family of Entertainers!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 06, 2018 NEW
The Hughes Brothers Show is on our “must see” list every time we come to Branson, typically 2-3 times per year. They never fail to amaze us with their talents. The brothers’ harmonies cause me to close my eyes and just absorb the beautiful sounds. Then there is the rest of this huge family... they sing, they dance to intricately choreographed numbers, they play multiple instruments, and they play them very well. It is phenomenal entertainment from start to finish. Can’t say enough wonderful things. A “must see”! Especially their Christmas program!!!
