  • Awesome place with a great history of famous actors and great camping grounds
  • If you enjoy overpaying for drinks... Watching rank amateurs attempt to hone their craft... And paying $80 bucks for a flash froze chicken fried steak, some mushy (INSTANT?) potatoes and a table spoon of Frozen corn...All the while the other customers are busy with the days scuttle moreso than the show..... Here it is. Seriously. Been there 2x Heard all this great stuff, but when I try to treat the misses to a little something different... I might be better off taking her to see a movie and eating a Whopper or QP prior. I've been in kids flicks that held an audience better. And I've eaten at $5 greasy spoons with better food.
  • Such a wonderful experience our family had. Honored and humbled that Pioneer Playhouse dedicated the season to the memory of my father. He would be so, very proud. The food and show were both amazing. Thank you all for your generosity and for taking such good care of us. 5 stars all the way!!
  • A fantastic, family friendly, meal and show under the stars. Very good pulled pork and chicken meal with homemade barbeque sauce, corn, potatoes and slaw. Then the outdoor show (indoor if very hot or raining) with comfortably, plastic, lawn chair seats. A good view from most of them as it's a smaller theater. Fantastic actors that you can meet and thank after the show. Campground and small, old time town to walk through. Can't wait to go again! 😊😊😊
  • We have been season pass holders for several years, even though it is about an hour drive from our home - we absolutely love it! Although the outdoor experience is much preferred, they have an indoor theater in the event of rain. They generally have five shows per season, each running almost two weeks. They have some local talent, but also cast from all over the country.
