Jimmy Osmond is trying to pay back to the man who launched his stardom and that of his famous family.
Osmond, the youngest of the performing Osmond clan, has taken the job of Head of Operations for the Andy Williams Moon River Theatre in Branson, Mo. — 47 years after a 3-year-old Jimmy Osmond made his TV debut on Williams' variety show.
"It will always be Andy's theater, and I'm going to run it the way I hope he'd want it to be ran," Osmond told the Branson Tri-Lakes News.
Osmond moved to Branson in the '90s, along with other members of his family, when he opened the Osmond Family Theatre in 1992. The family performed there for a decade, before Jimmy started renting the theater out to other performers — and the Osmonds started performing at other Branson venues.
