Andy Williams Performing Arts Center and Theater
Located on West Highway 76 on 16 acres of conservation award-winning landscape, this 48,000-square-foot theater was designed by Andy Williams himself. Andy was a pioneer of sorts in Branson – the first non-country artist to build a theater in this Ozark entertainment area. His theater is now the venue for country and non-country artists, magicians, and comedians as well as two over-the-top Christmas shows.
