The Haygoods are leaving Branson. Individual family members have been branching out and exploring personal creative interests for the last couple of years. They've also been working on a couple contracts which should be released soon...
From the Press Release:
After 16 years and more than 10,000 performances in Branson, The Haygood Family will perform their final full season of shows next year according to Haygood family representatives and David Sandy, president of David Sandy Productions, Inc.
Originally from Boerne, Texas, the musical family of seven brothers and one sister (Timothy, Patrick, Dominic, Michael, Shawn, Matthew, Aaron and Catherine) ranging in age from 14 to 30 became a Branson favorite soon after their first early performances at Silver Dollar City beginning in 1993. Proficient as musicians, vocalists, acrobats and entertainers, the family moved to the Music City Centre theater in 2002 and created a two-hour show that received notoriety and accolades from Branson visitors and locals alike.
The group has already initiated the planning and early stages of production of a television show that will showcase the personalities and variety of talent within the family. Additionally, selected national and international tour dates have been proposed for 2009 and beyond.
