Just opened our show in Branson 2 weeks ago and the owner shut us down yesterday :shake: Memorial day weekend just got here , school just let out , and we've yet to have any marketing get out and the owner shuts us down because we arent making money yet! 2 weeks! they said he decided to close the show a week ago! What idiot spends hundreds of thousands on rehearsals , sets , costumes , writing, etc. and closes the show after a week because he's not making a profit? 14 of the best entertainers , and people in Branson just lost their ability to pay mortgage and support their families. :cuss:
The show was getting rave reviews as the best show to come to Branson in years. We (production staff) still own the show which is entirely about the year 1957 with just music from that year still own the rights to the show. The owner of the Dick Clark Theater will let us stay in the Theater if we pay rent . This show has costumes , a set , and its already up and running! It has everything but rent and paychecks I know this is desperate, but I have a 7 month old , and several other people in the show are in the same boat. One couple even has a special needs child. Anyone ever thought about investing in Branson heres your chance. I know its a long shot , but there is a large comunity of friends here , so what the heck!
Prayers are greatly appreciated!

Good luck, wish I could help money wise, but can't at the moment. I will send a good luck, prayer though.

What does rent and pay cost? If the entertainers are convinced that it's a moneymaker, and everything is already set up, why don't they all just work on commission? If the show is profitable, they'll all be better off with that setup anyway. Then you'd just have to cover the rent in the short term.
