"America's Got Talent" Finalists Coming to Branson

BRANSON, MO--(Marketwire - September 14, 2007) - There was a definite Branson connection when it came to some of the finalists on this summer's hit NBC television show, "America's Got Talent" -- and that connection is about to get a lot stronger.

The Duttons, a Top Ten Finalist, have invited other finalists from the show to perform at the Dutton Theater in Branson for a limited engagement beginning Monday evening, September 17th.

"This all started as a request from David Hasselhoff to help some of the acts from "America's Got Talent" pursue their dreams to continue performing," said Sheila Dutton, matriarch of the talented family.

"During the course of the competition, all of the contestants got to know each other and became friends. When we made the offer to open a show here in Branson for a fall run, word got around and it wasn't long before the phone was ringing off the hook. Everyone is so excited to come here."

Each show will feature at least three of the finalists. The opening week will include the Calypso Tumblers from New York, singer Robert Hatcher from Cincinnati, the Glamazons from New York, and Branson's own Johnny Lonestar. Subsequent weeks will feature Cas Haley, Julienne Irwin, Fault Line, Jason Pritchett, and Butterscotch. This year's winner, ventriloquist Terry Fator, will participate via video from Las Vegas and is trying to clear a few days to join in the fun in Branson.

The Finalists will take the stage from 5:30 - 7 PM, Monday through Saturday. The Duttons will be hosting the show, and will be performing at 8:00 PM. Special combo-ticket packages are being made available that will include the Finalist Show, the Duttons Show and a free dinner for a special price.
