San Diego's local performing family has been asked to perform for the internationally celebrated Arts Festival "Art Town" in Reno, Nevada. Currently performing their award winning show at The world famous Welk Resort in Escondido, "The Platt Brothers" is an all out theatrical adventure put on by three real life brothers that combines dance, acrobatics, music, stories, and real family entertainment in an outrageous and clever performance enjoyed by all audiences. They have been featured quarter finalists on America's Got Talent, performed for Cirque Du Soleil, and headlined stages on Disney Cruise ships. Although their show tours the country in regional theaters, events, and festivals, the brothers are happy to call San Diego home.
