“Exceptional entertainment offered in unsuspecting location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Who would have ever expected a top quality musical or opera to be found in a town of only 4,000? Not me, but we were certainly pleasantly surprised last night!!! We attended "Dracula, The Rock Opera" at the GVT. The experience started with a very comfortable lobby and beverage options served in real glasses and mugs that you could carry into the theatre with you. The venue is small, but that adds to the intimacy of the performance. The actors/singers were clearly professional, each having an impressive list of credentials from prior performances in their careers. Our highlight on stage was Hannah McGinley as Lucy. Her role began with edgy overtones and led to a solo finale with a very seductive luring as a newly created vampire seeking to take over a child in a graveyard. Perhaps not the best storyline for a child before bedtime, but we thoroughly enjoyed the performance!

“Excellent small community theater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The performances by the cast, some of whom are professionals, are great. The theater is small and intimate. Well worth a visit.

“A quick look at the theater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

My husband and I went to the Greenbrier Valley Theater. We were only in town for a short visit and sadly there was not a show available that would fit our schedule. We were permitted to walk around the theater during the day and view some artwork and photos of some of the previous shows performed. The theater was interesting with some seating and items to view.

“greenbrier ghost - top notch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

what a great way to emerge yourself in the culture and tempo of the local town than by live theater - especially when it showcases a local legend - fun way to spend the night
