America’s favorite family, the Robertsons, are bringing their story to life onstage for the first time. Based on the best-selling book The Duck Commander Family by Willie and Korie Robertson, this stirring new show will make its world premiere at the Crown Theatre inside of the Rio All-Suite Las Vegas Hotel and Casino in April 2015.
In December 2013, the folks at The New York Times declared a stage musical about a certain duck-call-making family from Louisiana would be “a no-brainer.” They were speaking hypothetically – but what they didn’t know was one was already in the works, and now it’s here!
The Duck Commander Musical transports the Louisiana bayou to the Las Vegas stage in a captivating 90-minute show – seasoned with all the southern spirit and down-to-earth humor you’d expect from America’s most famous rednecks, the Robertson family. But while the true-to-life, rags-to-riches story behind A&E’s mega hit Duck Dynasty will surely please its most loyal fans, audiences unfamiliar with the Robertsons will also find themselves charmed – and even moved – by this surprising tale of faith, food, and family.
Featuring a contemporary score that blends country, rock, gospel, and pop and a multimedia set delivering backwoods authenticity through cutting-edge technology, The Duck Commander Musical will leave audiences humming the tunes, shedding a tear, and laughing at the hijinx of one family in pursuit of the American dream.
