“West Virginia's Best Kept Secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

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.

“Theater West Virginia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

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 out by the end of the first show where locals can get in free with canned goods for the local food pantries and advanced reservations.

“Great performance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

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.

“Go back in time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

My Mom and I have been to see the Hatfields & McCoys and Honey In the Rock. We enjoyed both greatly, but would recommend Honey In the Rock 1st. I actually felt like we went back in time to the days of the Civil War, when West Virginia was born. Drama, romance, action, and comedy made for an edge of your seat show. There is an intermittion halfway through the show to give you a chance to stretch your legs, get a snack, use the bathroom, etc. After the show, you have the opportunity to meet and greet all the performers as you exit the ampitheater. This is one of the best things to do in the area on a warm Summer evening, don't miss it!!
