“Rocket Boys”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

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 an evening.

We have attended 3 productions here and have thoroughly enjoyed everyone of them. The theatre is located in Grandview National Park offering great overlooks for viewing the New River Gorge.

“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!!
