A great big howdy! That’s how singer Chelsea Robson and her family have welcomed people to their ranch-turned-dinner theater in Mesa for the past 35 years. Their last show was this Saturday, as the family business wound to a close.

The Show caught up with Chelsea to talk about the end of this chapter. She grew up on the Rockin' R Ranch, where family dinners were always eaten with hundreds of paying strangers. But before her parents started the dinner theater on their family’s old ranch, they were on the road with a rock n’ roll band for 13 years.

The auction is this Monday at the Rockin' R Ranch.
