Branson Show Coming to Marshall County; Artists With Local Ties to Perform at Art Center

The Marshall County Arts Cooperative is bringing Patrick Dodd and Tracy Distefano to the area to perform their Branson-style show, “Patrick and Tracy Show.” They will perform two shows on Friday and Saturday, March 7 and 8, at 7:00 p.m. at the Lee Dam Center for Fine Art. Admission is $5.00. Tickets may be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce (Marysville) or at the door. Advance tickets are suggested since there is limited seating.

Patrick Dodd is the grandson of Pat and Helen Olmsted, Beattie.

Dodd and Distefano performed at the Waterville Opera House several years ago in a show called “Crazy Little Thing Called Love.”

“Patrick contacted us to let us know that they would be passing through the area in March,” said Wayne Kruse, the arts cooperative’s executive director. “We jumped at the chance of booking them again to perform for us. Their last show was a hit.”

Dodd and Distefano have been performing professionally for nearly twenty years. Even though both grew up in Nebraska they met while performing at Myrtle Beach, SC at the Alabama Theater. Having just celebrated thirteen years of marriage they have performed all over the world.

They are both original cast members of the Crown and Emerald Princess cruise ships, and they have performed at the world-famous Playboy Mansion. They have opened for both Lionel Richie and Diana Ross.

Both are versatile performers and have been influenced by a wide variety of artists, musical styles, and genres – Broadway, Motown, rock and roll, and country music. They bring all of this to their high-energy show that is geared toward people of all ages.

They currently perform “Patrick and Tracy Show” weekly at Wyndham Resorts in Branson, MO.
