“Rocket Boys-The Musical”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

We attended the premier of this play & it was outstanding.
We have been to plays are Grand view many times and have always enjoyed it. Some other plays we've seen there were:
Honey in the Rock, Stonewall, The Hatfields & McCoys, Oklahoma, Annie Get Your Gun, Guys & Dolls, Grease, South Pacific & many more.
I highly recommend this outdoor theater.

“Tried to see a show there twice, but were shut out both times”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

We had tickets to see a show a friend's daughter was in and went with family. We got our seats, purchased some food and sat through some ridiculous opening speeches and dances. The show ended up being canceled because an actor couldn't get there and there was no understudy. We were told our tickets could be used another night, so we tried again, driving all the way out there. The weather was iffy, but a call to the theatre said the show was on. Unfortunately, it started to rain torrentially so we were forced to go home without seeing the show. Better management needs to be in place so that people don't waste time and gas driving there when there won't be a show. We never did get to see one and won't likely pay to go again.

“A great experience”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

It's a little pricey but worth every penny to see the shows. The characters are just great and talk after the show and stay completely in character. Great for kids and teenagers. Be prepared, I wouldn't recommend small children or infants due to the gun shooting because it is very startling. They are very engaging and I've been multiple times because the actors will change and it changes the whole flavor of the shows. The regular shows are Honey in the Rock the story of how WV became a state and Hatfields and McCoys about a family feud that occured early in the state history. The families have bitter fights with one another but a single couple composed of one of each family live out a newer, rougher version of Romeo and Juliet. They're both highly recommended and play one night after the other.
