“Duck Commander Musical” opens tonight, Wednesday, April 15 in the Crown Theater at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, and the Robertsons can’t wait to see the spectacle.
The musical is a tale of faith, food, family and the pursuit of the American dream based on the best-selling book “The Duck Commander Family,” written by Korie and her husband, Willie, CEO of the family’s Duck Commander empire. The 90-minute musical features an original score that fuses country, rock, gospel and pop performed by a seven-piece band.
Tony Award-nominated director Jeff Calhoun directed and choreographed “Duck Commander Musical.” Asa Somers wrote the book and Steven Morris, Robert Morris and Joe Shane wrote the score. The cast includes Broadway veterans Mimi Bessette as Miss Kay, Ben Thompson as Willie, Tad Wilson as Phil and Russell Arden Koplin as Missy.
The Robertsons spent time working with the cast to make sure the experience is as authentic as possible for fans and newcomers alike.
Willie and Korie Robertson recently appeared on NBC’s TODAY Show and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to talk about its premiere and even shared some secrets behind the set of “Duck Dynasty,” with Fallon.
