Silver Dollar City Ushers in The Year of Shows and Festivals for 2019 Season

Coming off a blockbuster year that saw the opening of Time Traveler, a wild new spinning roller coaster, Silver Dollar City has announced that in 2019 the park will celebrate with a full year of exciting new shows and festivals.

The park is already well known for their live entertainment offerings, and in announcing their 2019 lineup they are showing that they are doubling down on that history.  Silver Dollar City is investing millions of dollars into "new and original productions, larger-than-life shows and festival adventures."

 “We are, and always will be, respectful to our roots of presenting great crafts, unique music and family-friendly shows,” said Brad Thomas, President of Silver Dollar City Attractions. “This coming year, we will add many colorful layers, boldly building a new era of entertainment into our traditions.

Opening in summer of 2019, the park's new $1 million production, "Reuben's Swashbuckling Adventure," is sure to be a hit with visitors.  This "Broadway-style musical is a magical journey of discovery with a colorful cast, flying characters, state-of-the-art sets and special effects."  Concept art for the production's stage can be seen above.

Other new Summer productions include a show called Kid Magic, featuring Kadan Bart Rockett who is known as the world's youngest magician.  He is best known for making it to the semifinals of the 11th season of America's Got Talent.
