  • This is a small show. It’s a tribute to classic vaudeville. It’s a little corny, and a little dated, but it’s completely charming. It’s also very family friendly. My seven year old loved it. When...  more »

  • We are going to miss the theater so much. We loved the show and we wish all the actors well. It will be a big loss to Gatlinburg  more »
  • Outstanding Christmas show! This has to be the best show in all Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. The cast really enjoys performing for their guests and shows through the quality performance they put forth. I have lived in this area for many years and have attended the majority of the areas attractions over the years. This is by far the most entertaining experience to date. You won't be disappointed!!
  • If you love the Smoky mountains as i surely do and you haven't been to Sweet Fanny Adams Theater you are missing a real treat. It was great seeing some dear friends tonight. They are a local group and specialize in a vaudeville style of theater, something that cant be found anywhere else in the area. Thanks again guys for the laughs. See yall again soon.
  • I was a bit skeptical due to the comments about being inappropriate for children, yet still gave it a shot. We went to see Ollie's Festival Follies. There was a few sexual innuendos but not to the point i was concerned. It was a great show. We enjoyed it and the customer service was great! Highly recommend!
  • We have been to this show twice in a couple of years. We had a mixed age range. The older generation seemed to really enjoy the show. The younger of us teens and 20's really did not like it much. Much more singing then comedy. The little bit of slight of hand was more entertaining. The audience participation portion is very cringeworthy.
  • My wife and I went here in October of 2018 for our anniversary and we had a blast. My wife was picked to participate in a skit and I was pulled up on stage. We went back on 12/15/2018 for the Christmas show and had a blast and I think it was funnier than last time. We had some friends go with us and the seating go mixed up and we weren't sitting together and we asked if we could change the setting and they let us. I got pulled up on stage again but it was fun. Great group of actors and very talented. Highly recommend.
