"It isn't often that you are approached with the idea to have your life story transformed into a musical," says Willie Robertson, CEO of Duck Commander. "But when opportunity knocks, you answer the door – and sometimes that door leads to Las Vegas."

The DUCK COMMANDER MUSICAL features music and lyrics by Robert Morris, Steven Morris and Joe Shane, is written by Asa Somers, and directed and choreographed by Jeff Calhoun and Bryan Bradford.  The show will perform in the soon-to-be transformed Crown Theater Sunday through Tuesday and Friday at 7 p.m., with two shows Thursday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. There will be no performance on Wednesday. Tickets can be purchased at www.duckcommandermusical.com, by phone at 702-777-7776 or 888-746-7784, or by visiting the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino box office.

The DUCK COMMANDER MUSICAL is produced by Tommy Mottola and the Dodgers.   The Dodgers are producers of Las Vegas' longest running Broadway show, JERSEY BOYS, at Caesars Entertainment's Paris Las Vegas.

"This is a very exciting time for our family," says Korie Robertson. "We are blessed to have the opportunity to share our lives with the world, and we cannot wait to have audiences join us on this incredible adventure."

The DUCK COMMANDER MUSICAL transports the Louisiana bayou to the Las Vegas stage in a captivating 90-minute show – seasoned with all the southern spirit and down-to-earth humor you expect from America's most famous rednecks, the Robertson family. But while the true-to-life, rags-to-riches story behind A&E's mega hit Duck Dynasty will surely please its most loyal fans, audiences unfamiliar with the Robertsons will also find themselves charmed – and even moved – by this surprising tale of faith, food, and family.

"We are delighted to present the Robertson family story in their first-ever theatrical production," says Michael David, President of the Dodgers. "Las Vegas is the prime location for audiences to experience first-hand the family America has come to know and embrace, where they can take a seat around Miss Kay's dinner table, watch Willie and Korie's love story unfold and a dynasty spring to life."

Featuring a contemporary score that blends country, rock, gospel, and pop and a multimedia set delivering backwoods authenticity through cutting-edge technology, the DUCK COMMANDER MUSICAL will leave audiences humming the tunes, shedding a tear, and laughing at the hijinx of one family in pursuit of the American dream. The production's score will include original songs inspired by the family such as "Faith Food and Family,"  "Camouflage," "Cooking for the Family," and "Like the River Flows."

"We are proud to debut a world-class musical at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, further cementing Caesars Entertainment as the entertainment leader in Las Vegas," said Jason Gastwirth, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Entertainment for Caesars Entertainment. "The Dodgers have an exceptional history of producing top-notch shows, including JERSEY BOYS at Paris Las Vegas, and we are excited to expand our relationship with them."   

"From the moment we began discussing the idea for this production we knew we had something special on our hands," says Tommy Mottola. "The Robertson family story is both unique and captivating, and will provide great family entertainment and appeal to a wide spectrum of audience."

The DUCK COMMANDER MUSICAL is designed by Tobin Ost, Adam Rigg and Leslie Malitz, with lighting design by Michael Gilliam and Topher Stumreiter, sound design by John Trace, projection design by Aaron Rhyne, Bart Cortright and Matthew Mellinger, musical supervision by Jesse Vargas and casting by Duncan Stewart CSA/Benton Whitley CSA.
