Chloe Channell To Join Kenny Rogers Christmas Musical In Branson

September 30, 2013

Local “America’s Got Talent” sensation Chloe Channel has joined the cast of Kenny Rogers hit musical “The Toy Shoppe” at the Starlite Theatre in Branson, Missouri, opening November 1 for this Christmas season.

“I am really excited to be a part of all this. It’s going to be amazing!” said Chloe, who will do 60 shows by December 21. The show, written by Kenny Rogers and Kelly Junkermann stars country sensation Billy Dean.

“The only way you can do a play with heart, is to have a cast with heart…and that’s harder than it sounds,” said Rogers. “There are a lot of people who can sing the notes, but very few who can make you believe the passion and the joy of the musical journey. My friend Billy Dean certainly can do all of those things and when I listened to Chloe, I knew she would be very special as well.”

“The Toy Shoppe” is a place where toys come to life and children gather to hear owner Hank Longley tell stories. The audience joins Hero the Dog, Cheeseball the Mouse, Bruno the Bear and Billy Dean as Hank Longley in this story of love, faith and appreciation for the value of every individual. The story is full of old-fashioned values and is great entertainment for the entire family.

“It’s gonna be so COOL!! I can’t wait,” Chloe wrote on her Facebook page. “So make plans to come see me.”

Finding new talent has always been a trademark of Kenny Rogers shows. Garth Brook’s first national tour was opening for Kenny Rogers at Christmas.
