Songstress Dalena Ditto is back again in 2012 headlining her new, expanded afternoon and morning shows at the Hamner-Barber Theatre – an exciting new location for her show in 2011. This is her 11th Branson season (2012).
The Iowa native serves up pop, country, gospel, Bluegrass, patriotic and more in a voice that fans describe as "exquisite" and "unbelievable." All the music you love is in her show, from old-fashioned spirituals to classic country favorites. There's even 50’s and 60’s hits including "In the Mood" and "Unchained Melody," plus the hits of Patsy Cline, Crystal Gayle, Anne Murray, Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty, Elvis and many more.
Dalena is also multilingual and sings in several languages. Rounding out the playbill is her band, "The Boys," David Creech, Stephanie McKinney, Brandy Roberts, Randy Hall, Rob Wilson, Ricky Boen and Steve Matlock.
