This is a perfect theater experience under the stars. The family and staff who run the Playhouse are a true treasure. The theater itself is unique, comfortable, and effective in delivering a great entertainment experience. This level of professionalism is impressive and is delivered with a friendly, down-home approach that is heart-warming. Prices are very reasonable, free parking is plentiful,... More

I have had season tickets for three years and plan on doing it again for the 2015 season. Great night out for family, friends or couples. I prefer sitting outside but sometimes Mother Nature doesn't cooperate and they move the play inside. You will pay a bit more than a typical night at the movies, but this is a live... More

Stayed here because the camp sites were only $10/night. It's true that the sites are just a grassy area to pitch your tent, not necessarily a fire ring or picnic table at your site, but it was a great central place for us to base our day trips from. I was struck at the quaintness and laid-backness of the outdoor... More

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.'
