Donny and Marie

Long running variety show, featuring the brother-sister singing duo of Donny and Marie Osmond. The first season also featured all of the Osmond families, but Donny and Marie were obviously the most popular of the bunch so the rest were phased into occasional appearances.

    George Osmond (October 13, 1917-November 6, 2007) was the patriarch of the Osmond Family. Olive May Osmond (May 4, 1925-August 28, 2004) was the matriarch of the Osmond singing family. The Osmond siblings were born in Ogden, Utah, except Jimmy, who was born in Canoga Park, California. George "Virl" Osmond, Jr (October 19, 1945) was the first born; Thomas "Tom" Rulon (October 26, 1947) was second of nine; Alan (June 22, 1949) was third; Melvin "Wayne" (August 28, 1951) was fourth; Merrill Davis (April 30, 1953) was fifth; Jay (March 2, 1955) was sixth; Donny (December 9, 1957) was seventh; Marie (October 13, 1959) was eighth; and Jimmy (April 16, 1963) completed the ninth sibling. Their father George was in Ogden real estate and selling insurance. The Osmond Brothers began as a barbershop quartet group in their hometown of Ogden, Utah; consisted of brothers Alan, Wayne, Merrill and Jay. The Osmond Brothers quartet was later joined by younger siblings Donny (joining the group at age 6) and Jimmy (joining at age 6). Melvin "Wayne" Osmond (August 28, 1951) was second oldest, Alan (June 22, 1949) was the oldest, of the original singing brothers. During the 1969 Disneyland Park's Summer schedule, the Osmond Brothers appeared for a four week engagement during the month of June, at the Disneyland's Tomorrowland (outdoor) Summer nightly variety show, produced by Bob Jani and Chuck Corsen, Disneyland Entertainment Division. Disneyland Entertainment produced a three month long variety entertainment show, broken down with a month (4 week) engagement for each group booked as a live entertainment amusement park show. The variety show was staged three times, each night, during the four weeks, the first show starting at seven (7:00pm). The three (June, July and August) month summer variety show was an enticement to keep the park's visitors during the night's entertainment package. Arriving from Ogden, Utah, the first night of their Disneyland stage show appearance, father George Osmond, who managed the group, shepherded the six boys onto the outdoor stage at six (6:00 p.m). With the front curtain closed, until the first show-time of the Tomorrowland stage, the nervous and apprehensive group of Osmond brothers huddled in a circle center stage, while papa George conducted a prayer meeting soothing his nervous son's anxiety. The Osmond Brothers were one of three headliner acts-groups featured during the Tomorrowland variety show"s June four week engagement.
