“Lost in the 50’s with The Platters” debuts in Branson

Starlite Entertainment, a leading provider of quality entertainment and first-class theatre management in Branson, Missouri, announced today the debut of a marvelous, all-new show for the Branson market – continuing it’s celebration of the the 1950’s – America’s most beloved musical era.

With over 100 shows presently in the competitive Branson market vying for theatre audiences, Starlite Entertainment management recognizes it must offer enhanced entertainment value to patrons each year to stay successful. Lost in the 50’s has been a successful Branson show for 8 consecutive years – and The Platters have performed here in Branson for even longer, first performing at Mutton Hollow in 1996. “The combination of these two incredible franchisees was staring us right in the face – this is a great idea whose time has come,” remarked Rob Patrick, Operations Manager at Starlite.

Just like the famous saying from the fifties, this new show really doubles your pleasure with a combination of the best sights, sounds and high energy production people have come to know and love from the Lost in the 50’s show, combined with the awe-inspiring vocal harmonies and hit songs of The World Famous Platters show. It’s a fantastic combination of music, memories and magical, top-notch performances and production. The combination production showcases singers, dancers, an incredible live band – and the World Famous Platters, all intricately woven together to provide a memorable and moving 1950’s experience.

From 1950-1955, The Platters were the most popular vocal group, recording just under 400 songs, selling over 89 million records, and receiving 230 awards that later helped them to be inducted into the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame.

“We’ve worked hard to combine the very best of these two shows, really bringing to life the wonderful nostalgia of the 50’s – including those incredible personalities and harmonies of The Platters – in one super production,” commented Ray Kennedy, the show’s producer. Kennedy’s long list of credits includes dozens of successful shows around the world. “We’ve really come up with something very exciting here.”

This exciting production begins on Friday, June 16 at 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., Monday-Saturday at the Starlite Theatre on Branson’s popular 76 strip, ushering in a whole new era of Branson entertainment.
