The assembled players were as talented professionals as you could ever expect. The guitar player and... More

This is my second time attending this show. Attended it last probably five years ago and decided to try it again instead of going to the movies. The first part of the show is geared more towards gospel and older country. The second half of the show is a little more fast paced. The performers are talented and the quality... More

Dailey and Vincent are a wonderful group. Their music was superb. They kept the audience wonderfully entertained. Will definitely go and see them again.

There was nothing special about the performance, which was a bit boring to me. This, however, is one of the few things to do in the evening and a pleasant way to spend the evening.

We both are impressed from the moment we enter the theater. The box office staff as always friendly and very helpful. The lobby is spotless and everything is well organized. The concession stand...

We didn't really know what this theater would be like, but we really enjoyed the show. It was religious Christmas music and good slapstick humor. The musical talent (singing and instrumental) was excellent.

I took my Mom as her Christmas gift. We had such an enjoyable evening. It was so nice to hear my mom laugh and watch her smile. I can't get over the talent of these people. Jeremiah

Enjoy the show by the extended Sexton family, eat a nice dinner and breakfast in a pretty restaurant, and sleep comfortably in a new hotel, all for one small price, in this case, $99 each. The performance, a Christmas show that's sort of southern gospel style, is in a middle-sized theater with lots of leg room and wide aisles. The... More

We have only visited twice, but we will be back! Music was fantastic, professional all the way! Enjoyed the music and the comedy, all family oriented and they lifted up our Lord and Savior in word and song. Beautiful facility, the seating was very spacious and not a bad seat in the house!

If you ever get the chance, please take advantage of seeing the Christmas show put on by these talented performers. We have gone every year for the past 5 years and it just keeps getting better. Great music and comedy. They make you feel like family. We travel to Elkins for all kinds of shows at their theatre, but we... More
