This comedy show was hilarious. The cast had so much energy. We saw the Christmas performance “Ollie’s Follies”. It was a comedy/variety type show. The cast was very talented and friendly. A must see while in Gatlinburg.

My wife and I visited Sweet Fanny Adams, and we had a blast. If you are ever near Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge, do yourself a favor and see the show. The cast are the best and very professional. Book early cause it books up fast.

The cast is very talented. The show was absolutely great entertainment. The small venue makes it more personal. Recommended for anyone who enjoys the vaudeville style of entertainment.

Trip Report Day 2: 10/27/08 (2 Replies)
Started off the day at the Log Cabin Restaurant. It was very good as usual. Left there and headed out to walk to Cataract Falls from the parking lot next to the ranger's headquarters. It was a nice and easy walk and the falls were nice. I then went to the Sugarlands Visitor Center. I wanted to take the self guided Fighting Creek trail. I never knew that, until sometime this year, it had an old homestead along the way. I got the guide and headed out. At the very beginning, a ranger was...More

Discount Coupons for Dollywood and Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre (6 Replies)
Does anyone know of any discount coupons that are available for either of these venues....other than Timeshare Offers. Thanks

Response fromtravelerwannabe08|
Not really a discount coupon but Dollywood allows you to enter after 3 pm and return the next day on a one day ticket. Right now I think they are offering a free breakfast buffet with the purchase of a full price ticket - online - good only in October. I also think they offer a discount if you buy both a Dollywood ticket and Dixie Stampede ticket.
