Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center’s 25th annual
A Country Christmas celebration has added a new—and familiar—face to its Christmastime events. Straight from her highly popular theater in Tennessee’s Smoky Mountains, Louise Mandrell’s spectacular Christmas dinner show is giving the holidays at the resort a while new feel.
The Louise Mandrell’s ‘Joy to the World’ Christmas Dinner & Show runs Nov. 15 through Dec. 25, 2008. This traditional holiday production features the multi-talented Mandrell and her band as they bring a combination of lively Christmas music, dancing, and comedy to the stage in an instrumental journey around the world. The new menu, created by Gaylord Opryland’s award-winning chefs, includes traditional trimmings and hearty comfort food, served family-style.
“Louise Mandrell has been a beloved performer known across the nation for more than two decades since she and her sisters debuted their Mandrell sisters variety show in the 1980’s,” said Pete Weien, senior vice president and general manager of Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center. “Louise has a passion for families, in fact her niece is in the show. She also has a passion for music and Christmas. She will combine the best of all three making her show one to remember for many years for our guests.”
“Joy to the World describes my show perfectly. Celebrating the birth of Jesus with traditional Christmas music and a ‘trip around the world’ where I get a chance to play some of my instruments. We will also be taking a special trip to the North Pole where ‘Lou the Mailman’ will be reminding us of the true meaning of Christmas,” Mandrell explains.
Mandrell’s list of hits include “I Thought You Never Asked,” “Some of My Best Friends Are Old Songs,” “Save Me” and “I Wanna Say Yes.” She has been highly successful in the theater world, performing at the Grand Palace Theater in Branson, Mo., and at her very own, Louise Mandrell Theater in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.
