Experience the Arts in Downtown Branson

* NOTE: Artist’s rendering. Trolleys can’t fly or travel backwards through time.

Sparky the Trolley can take you back in time, to Broadway-style shows, and to art galleries and stores.

OK. The trolley isn’t a DeLorean-esque time machine. It can’t travel at 88 MPH and despite our best efforts it can’t fly. But it can take you back in time to some amazing forms of arts and entertainment that are alive and well in Historic Downtown Branson.

Many are surprised when they experience the rare world-class talent that abounds in the Ozarks.

The music will take you back.

Branson Hot Hits Theater has shows for all ages. They’re uniquely nostalgic for anyone who grew up loving music from the ‘50s through the ‘80s. Close your eyes and get swept away!

  • “Motown Downtown”
  • “DooWop & More”
  • “Marvin Gaye & Masters of Soul”
  • “Platters Golden Sounds”
  • “Patsy to Patsy”
  • “James Taylor & Soft Rock of the ‘80s”
  • “Broadway to Hollywood”
