Orlando and - Newton? to open Branson theater

Tony Orlando may be cutting a yellow ribbon at his new theater next spring with help from buddy Wayne Newton.

The entertainers plan to open the TOWN theater on April 15 in Branson, Mo."We will have the opportunity to share our vision, a oneness of creative spirit, and to give Branson audiences the best shows of our lives," Orlando said Wednesday.

The theater's name comes from the entertainers' initials, said Newton.
