Tap dancer Arthur Duncan, country singer Ava Barber ("Bucket to the South") and singer-dancer Mary Lou Metzger -- all former Welk regulars -- are set to star during the run of this merry and bright variety show for the whole family. The pop-culture phenomenon known as The Lawrence Welk Show was a hit on TV for more than 30 years, as its genial baton-wielding host showcased singers, dancers, and musicians and brought "champagne music" -- and soap bubbles -- to the masses (and to Saturday Night Live parodies). This Yuletide extravaganza boasts sparkling costumes, sets and production numbers, that're sure to get you in the holiday spirit. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights

Tom Netherton appeared in an outdoor musical pageant The Medora Musical, in Medora, North Dakota. The owners of the show, Harold and Sheila Schafer, arranged for Tom to meet Lawrence Welk in Bismarck, where Tom had the opportunity to sing for him. As a result, Welk invited him to join his musical family at the St. Paul Civic Center a few weeks later, where he found himself facing an audience of 19,000. Tom was so well received at the concert that Welk invited Tom, on stage and in front of everyone, to join his television show. From then on, things moved quickly in Tom's career.
Tom made his first appearance on The Lawrence Welk Show at Christmas 1973, and performed for over 8 years to audiences of 35-40 million each week. The show went into syndication and it is now seen every week on 270 PBS stations across the country.
