The Robertson's, from the A&E reality series Duck Dynasty, are taking their act to Las Vegas. The bearded and faith-based family is getting a 90-minute musical coming in April. 

The show is set for a 680-seat theater at Las Vegas' Rio hotel and casino, a venue that has also held shows for Chippendales dancers and Penn & Teller. The musical will be based on a book about the duck-making family written by Duck Commander CEO Willie Robertson and his wife, Korie. Robertson told Fox in January the musical is about "redemption."

Tommy Mottola, music director for the show, said in a statement: "From the moment we began discussing the idea for this production we knew we had something special on our hands. The Robertson family story is both unique and captivating, and will provide great family entertainment and appeal to a wide spectrum of audience."

Tickets are selling for the general public from $49 to $125. 

The upcoming show is billed as: "The Duck Commander Musical transports the Louisiana bayou to the Las Vegas stage in a captivating 90-minute show - seasoned with all the southern spirit and down-to-earth humor you expect from America's most famous rednecks, the Robertson family. But while the true-to-life, rags-to-riches story behind A&E's mega hit Duck Dynasty will surely please its most loyal fans, audiences unfamiliar with the Robertsons will also find themselves charmed - and even moved - by this surprising tale of faith, food, and family. Featuring a contemporary score that blends country, rock, gospel, and pop and a multimedia set delivering backwoods authenticity through cutting-edge technology, The Duck Commander Musical will leave audiences humming the tunes, shedding a tear, and laughing at the hijinx of one family in pursuit of the American dream."

Ratings for the once hit TV show are down 40 percent from the 11 million people who watched the Season 4 premiere.
