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.

Wife and I (seniors) paid $54.96 online for show tickets (general admission - sit wherever) and drove to West Virginia and stayed in nearby Charleston. On afternoon of performance, rainstorms made it impossible to drive to Beckley, let alone sit there until after 8 pm to find out if show was cancelled. We called from road and said they couldn't...

My wife and I saw all three of the shows that were playing. They were very entertaining. The quality of the actors and actresses were a cut above most companies. The singing and dancing was outstanding. You can learn a lot about the history of the area which is another plus. They performed "Honey in the Rock", about how West... More

My nephews (9 and 11) and I went to see the Honey in the Rock. The play was wonderful. There were a few technical difficulties, but nothing that really disrupted the play. They offered snacks at a reasonable price. The setting was wonderful, but a little scary to drive out of at night.

Little did I know that I would be amazed and entertained by this excellent show in the middle of nowhere. People come from all over the county to see this wonderful production. I will definitely go back. We saw Hatfields and Mcoys and want to return to see Honey in the Rock.

Wonderful outdoor drama/plays. At least 3 different ones and some concerts during the summers. Well worth it. The acting and environment is great for all ages. We usually go on the first night of the performances as we are local. So sometimes these nights they are still getting some of the acoustical kinks out, but they always have it worked... More

Saw the performance of Honey in the Rock. I do recommend you obtain seats as close to the stage as possible as hearing the performers can be a problem if too far away.
