HOMEWOOD, Ill. – (April 26, 2011) – National recording artist Rod Burton and his wife Kelly announced today that they have accepted the position of managers for the newly renovated Pat Boone Family Theater in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Rod will serve as the theater’s General Manager and will be responsible for the overall operations as well as booking a variety of family-friendly talent for the theater. Kelly will be the Director of Marketing, overseeing marketing, promotions, and advertising for the theater and related businesses.

Rod & Kelly will be relocating their family, ministry, and the offices of YMR Music Productions, LLC (parent company of the award-winning Branson Gospel Music Revival) to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in the next few weeks.

“We have been waiting in the wings since December as this new opportunity has unfolded before us,” Rod says. “Everything about it, from the nature of the theater and our positions there to the heart of the man who brought us on board seems ordained for this time. We are so grateful for an exciting new avenue that will allow us to continue and expand our work in ministry.”

Kelly adds, “After living in Chicagoland my entire life, I’d been preparing for our family to move to Nashville when this opportunity kind of fell from heaven into our laps. We are beyond thankful for the support of our family and friends as we make this exciting transition and look forward to what God has in store.”
