This is a true little theater experience....complete with an inadequate sound system, prop failures, and overacting. But, the setting is a GRAND VIEW, the folks are friendly, and the snack bar is something else. What would we do without this outdoor entertainment ? We'd miss it...that's what !

What a fantastic night out. You can enjoy the live performance by excellent actress and actors while sitting under a beautiful mountain sky. well worth the admission. Plus you may actually learn some WV history

Hadn't been in years...or maybe decades. It was a beautiful night. Saw Hatfields and McCoys. Loved the singing, dancing, and the story. The acting was good. There was a couple modern dance numbers that were a little bizarre and could've been cut. Also, the narrators when on a little bit. Overall, had a great time. The weather was perfect. A giant moon came up over the set. Some birds flew over. Enjoyed some snacks at intermission. Didn't need the rain jacket I brought. The blanket came in handy at the end to cover our legs. Didn't need to use it for a seat cushion because I felt the seats were plenty comfortable. I highly recommend, if you've never been. Would like to bring our daughters, next time when they're not away at camp.

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.
