We attended opening night of "Million Dollar Quartet" while staying in the area. The energy, vocals, and musical performances were incredible. Lighting and costuming were also excellent. I will definitely check the performance schedule if we come back through the area. There's not a bad seat in the house. Staff/volunteers were very friendly. Restrooms were adequate (no waiting) and there's... More

Recently moved to the Crossville area and happened onto this Playhouse. Our first impression when we drove up was what an adorable building and surroundings and plenty of parking. Upon going inside to purchase our tickets, we were quickly served at the window. The employee was so helpful in helping us select our seats. There are two theaters, main stage... More

We went to an afternoon performance of "Second Helping'. This play was performed in the small theater which is a quite intimate setting. There is a large theater in this facility as well for night time shows which include many well known groups performing live as well as plays.

Went to see "Greener Pleasures" but wasn't impressed! The acting was sufficient but didn't much care for the writing. Slow start was hard to keep your attention but did pick up some after intermission. Still, the playhouse is very nice and the other play we have seen was excellent. A good time with great friends, very worth while.

My husband and I attended the 11:00 am show of "Greener Pastures". The main character was a singing sandwich. I kid you not. I knew when it started that we were in trouble when a sandwich, BBQ sauce man, bacon woman, egg woman and horse man started the show that it was not gonna be good. It was terrible. We... More

Close to home but first visit. Saw the adaptation of a Christmas Classic. The Christmas Story is an adaptation of the original movie and I thought they did a good job of bringing it to stage. Can't believe the negative reviews of the playhouse. Apparently some of the guests are expecting Broadway Musical quality for East Tennessee prices. Excellent presentation... More

We have seen 2 shows so far. The Little Mermaid, we took the granddaughters to. They loved it. Recently we saw the Odd Couple. Lots of laughs. It was a great show. Very reasonably priced, too. Would highly recommend this venue.
