Although I am a big fan of fall weather and the cooler temperatures that this season brings, like everyone else, I struggle to find things to do during my free time.
Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of taking my husband and 4 year old daughter to see the Variety! Music, Memories & More at the Badgett Playhouse in our scenic little town of Grand Rivers. This was our first time seeing a show at this lovely theater and we were blown away! What exactly is Variety! you ask? It’s a Branson-style family show that features a very talented cast of singers, musicians and dancers. It’s a great show for young and old alike but if you plan on bringing your energetic toddler or preschooler, I would strongly suggest the matinee show or make sure they’ve had their nap before you take them to the evening show. Kids will love the live band and colorful costumes and the adults will love the music and tribute to our armed forces. I dare you not to tear up during the tribute!
The show features everything from swing music to motown, oldies rock & roll to country. You’ll catch yourself singing along to your favorites and getting goosebumps while listening to the solo artists play their instruments. Their signature show, Variety!, already had its last showing for the year earlier this month but their Christmas shows are in full swing. Visit their website, www.grandriversvariety.com for ticket information and show times. I already have my tickets reserved!
So for those chilly, rainy weekends this winter, head over to Grand Rivers and visit the Badgett Playhouse and don’t forget to hit the concession stand for some hot chocolate!
I promise, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
