Every year Branson unveils new or redesigned shows, which only adds to the excitement of the new production season. This year is no exception. While very few shows have undergone major redesigns, there is one new show coming to Branson that has the locals very excited.
Chun Yi – The Legend of Kung Fu is a show unlike any other in Branson. The story follows a young boy as he enters the life of a Buddhist monk. The audience will watch as the boy struggles to find the dedication to the quiet lifestyle. During the story, the young boy learns the skills of martial arts, is seduced by ego and illusions, leaves the pure life of the Buddhist monks behind, and eventually returns to assume the position his Master had left him. Chun Yi – The legend of Kung Fu is a powerful tale of personal growth and the realization of physical and emotional harmony.
Chun Yi – The Legend of Kung Fu is filled with fantastic acrobatic feats, displays of brilliantly choreographed martial arts, and emotion-filled dancing. Features a cast and crew of 80 talented performers, designers, and choreographers, this show is the longest running show in China and has been seen by more than two million people. The Kung Fu practitioners have performed around the world, including a special performance during the Opening Ceremonies at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
This incredible show will be performing in the newly-acquired White House Theatre and is scheduled to open in May of 2010. If you can’t wait until May, check out the website of the show. It has video clips and photos from their show, as well as some of the songs used during the dance numbers.
