Great local find! Outdoor theater with locally written plays, fantastic set design, and world class talent! A must attend event, be sure to get there early and have dinner before the show

A fairly decent play, but it won't be back. The experience was acceptable and enjoyable if not a little loud.

Pioneer Playhouse is a great little gem in Danville. They offer great plays performed in the outdoor Playhouse under the stars weather permitting, but can move the play indoors if need be. Pioneer attracts many famous actors from New York and boasts about having John...More

When you've been open for 68 years you have to be doing something right. Pioneer playhouse features 5 different plays each summer, and we're disappointed if we miss even one. Theatre under the stars, a Kentucky treasure for sure!

Stepping down the stairs felt as though I was entering a 1920s outdoor playhouse with actors' accommodations within a few feet of the stage. The play Death by Darkness, even though quite predictable, was enjoyable. Both Hensons, part of the famous local playwright family, met...More
