I have lived in Beckley for 25 years and was always ashamed to say that I had never been to Theatre WV except for a production of Oklahoma about 15-20 years ago. The real Theatre WV is outdoor. I got interested because they had been having some financial problems and going to see The Hatfield and McCoys was on my... More

My husband and I love this park and theatre. We make a point to stop each time we're on our way through to Florida. This summer we saw The Hatfields and the McCoys and it was great. Two summers ago we saw Honey in the Rock which we loved best of all. This is a real community effort but the... More

I highly recommend visiting this outdoor theater. Hatfields and McCoys and Honey In the Rock are excellent shows. Professional acting. Nice atmosphere with clean, fresh mountain air. Remember, evenings in the mountains can be cool so wear appropriate clothing, bring a jacket along.

Theatre WV is awesome. This year they are offering the Hatfields and MCoys and it is very well put together. Grandview National Park is where the theatre is located so if you have time visit the park before the show the views are amazing.

My family and I went to see the Wizard of Oz, Hatfields and McCoys, and Honey in the Rock. All the shows were great and lots of fun for families. The acting was good as well as the sets and music. It is an outdoor theatre so bring bug spray and a blanket or coat as well as it can... More

Outdoor Theatre is NOT DEAD at Grandview and it is a Must See Event. We went to the production of the Hatfield and McCoy Drama and it was Wonderful. The story jumped right off the pages of history and featured a great cast. Loved the music and dancing.

Contrary to some listings, this show is NOT closed. The acting and singing is excellent, the story compelling, and the evening enjoyable. A lovely evening!

Our group attended an evening performance of The Hatfields and the McCoys. We arrived an hour early and enjoyed a local group singing mostly original, folksy tunes until show time. Prior to the show, a man talked about the history of the theater. Apparently, it was forced to close for a time and it was recently reopened. It was a... More

The hills of West Virginia are alive with great plays, such as "The Rocket Boys, The Wizard of Oz, The Hatfields and McCoys". Located in Grandview State Park, bring a picnic and make it a day event, shows start at dusk, Rain or shine so dress accordingly.

This outdoor theater is a must see if you enjoy theater. Rocket Boys was enjoyable and priced right (use your AAA card for a discount). I gave it only 4 stars because the night I saw this there were some issues with the microphones and some dialogue was lost. Otherwise I cannot think of a more pleasant way to spend... More
