I have been to this amphitheatre over 20 times in a 40 year time span and I've never been disappointed. I have been enthralled with "Honey in the Rock" and "Hatfields & McCoys". Honey is a drama about the founding of the state of WV, and H&M is a play about the famous feud. The sets of both plays are fantastic, and the acting, dancing, and singing are top notch. This is a great way to spend an evening.

Theater West Virginia has a long standing history of providing quality entertainment. Shows vary throughout the season but the ole standbys of Honey and the Rock and The Hatfields and McCoys are definitely worth seeing.

This is a wonderful thing to take your family too. Nice to sit outside and just be with your family while seeing a great attraction

I have wanted to go check out the outdoor theater for years, but I have never had any luck convincing my husband to drive over an hour away and paying $19 per ticket. So when we received complimentary tickets and were going to be about 20 minutes away from that area any way he lost the arguement! FINALLY, And let me tell you we were all floored at what a spectacular show they put on! We watched the HATFIELDS AND MCCOYS and there was never a dull moment. Wayy better than watching a movie at a indoor theater. My daughter enjoyed being outside at night under the stars tremendously, but the true test was my husbands opinion. He could not stop talking about it all the way home and told everybody we saw over the next few days how it was totally worth the drive and the $19 he would gladly pay to watch a show that good! And he plans to go back and watch it a second time and he NEVER does that with any old indoor movie!! So yes we plan to go back to see the other shows in the future as well!! The seats were just a tad tight for us but not horrible and I did see some people up top with chairs so I'm sure they accommodate any needs you may have. We asked for a end seat and she had no problem giving us that. Everybody was very friendly and the park is gorgeous I look forward to going back and exploring the whole park and maybe watching Ring Of Fire music of Johnny Cash or Honey in the Rock! SCORE!! Is my final word for this place!!
