When family visits we always take them here. It is good, clean family fun. We have eaten there a couple of times and not really enjoyed it. They do local meats and produce but we just don't find it to our taste. You can easily eat elsewhere very comfortably then see the show. It is always a lot of fun.... More

The productions at Pioneer Playhouse are consistently first-rate. Each summer at least one production deals with topics and/or history of interest to Danville, or to Kentucky. The facilities are charming and comfortable. Before each show you can have a lovely supper, be serenaded by live folk music, and stroll around the grounds. Performances are always charged with the energy and... More

My husband and I have attended Pioneer Playhouse for the ten years we've lived in Danville. The stadium seating, friendly staff and outdoor air make it a different type of entertainment, and we enjoy something different. Take a sweater because the air usually gets cool even on warm days. The play moves inside in case of rain.

We were there during Irish Fest and saw In Search of Tinker Doyle. Food was good, staff friendly and play hilarious.

This great family owned playhouse has served as a training ground for many actors who went on to become celebrities. My friends and family see several productions there every summer and never come away disappointed.

We live a thirty miles away, but try to go to at least one play a summer. It is still owned by the family who started it. Lee Majors and several other actors have started out here. It is an outdoor theatre and they also have a dinner before the play. They even provide mosquito repellent if needed.'

We were in the area and decided to check out the campground while there. The plays had not started yet, but look like they would be fun to see when they are open for business.

The greats have been here. Some of them got started here. The entire place is recycled from historic town buildings past their prime. If you love live theater , nostalgia and farm to table eats, you will love this place. I will certainly be back next year

An outdoor summer stock theater. Shows run from June to August. The actors are fantastic, sets well done and seamless performances. The decor is very basic but nice (don't expect up scale or you will be disappointed). The dinner, optional, is good but not great. If you enjoy fine dining I would suggest to eat somewhere else and choose the... More
