SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Some singing rednecks are storming Branson. They'll perform at the Oak Ridge Boys Theatre this summer.
The 3 Redneck Tenors joined Ozarks Today on Friday. Even though there are four members of the group, one of them isn't a tenor, thus the name. ----
Here's how one reviewer described the show:
"The curtain rises on the boys’ Paris, Texas, trailer park and before you know it Billy Bob (Alex Bumpus) is singing “Willkommen” from “Cabaret” in cutoff shorts and a raveled orange sweatshirt.
The show has a plot line narrated by The Colonel, Dinny McGuire, who in real life has spent 25 years as the ringmaster for Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and the Big Apple Circus. He also sings bass.
The set features an outhouse, Airstream and plastic furniture — all the better to pop beers and wish upon a star peeking out from behind an oil rig. The cousins decide to follow their dreams and head for Broadway. “Hold on to your badoobies,” Bill Bob says.
Their trip takes about 15 minutes, and when we rejoin the Rednecks after intermission they’ve installed their Airstream in Times Square, adding bars on the window and a New York City portable toilet. Their first job in the Big Apple is at a haunted Howard Johnson’s, which leads the trio."
