The 39 Steps
Adapted by Patrick Barlow
From the novel by John Buchan and the movie by Alfred Hitchcock

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python, and you have The 39 Steps! A fast-paced who-dunnit with 150 zany characters, an onstage plane crash, hand cuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance. Hilarious and not-to-be-missed! All ages.

That Book Woman
World Premiere! A Kentucky Voices Original!
Adapted by Holly Hepp-Galvan
From the classic picture book by Heather Henson

High in the hills of Kentucky, everybody’s talking about the lady who rides straight up the mountainside on horseback braving all kinds of weather as part of Eleanor Roosevelt’s new-fangled Pack Horse Library project.  Crazy risking life and limb just for a bunch of books, some say. And yet, what the rider brings, week after week, is more than stories tucked inside her saddlebags; what that Book Woman brings to the people of Appalachia is a new sense of wonder and pride, a new kind of hope. A heartfelt, uplifting celebration of a beloved piece of Kentucky history for the whole family to enjoy. All ages.

July 23-August 10
By Matthew Barber
From the novel by Annette Sanford

Starring Patricia Hammond!

Eleanor lives a quiet life, set in her routines and secure in her position as the most respected woman in her small Texas town…until a hole in her roof draws the attention of a smooth-talking drifter named Abel, intent on renovating Eleanor’s house, and possibly her life. A funny, feel-good comedy about finding love when you least expect it. All ages.

Rain Policy

Pioneer Playhouse shows are held in our historic outdoor amphitheater. There is always a slight risk of rain when attending shows outside.

All performances are held outside.  In case of light rain, show continues.
 If show is canceled due to severe weather, rain checks will be given.

Shows are not considered rained out until show time. We may delay or pause to allow weather to pass.


If a performance is canceled or cannot continue due to rain, your ticket will be stamped as a rain check and may be redeemed for any performance during the season. Please hold onto the ticket and contact the box office to reschedule

You may bring umbrellas. Umbrellas and ponchos are also available for purchase in our gift shop.

In extreme cases of threatening weather we may cancel a show prior to curtain and will make an announcement on our social media pages.

We want to provide the Playhouse experience you know and love and keep everyone safe.

Seating capacity will be reduced to promote social distancing.

Only one family member should come to the box office window.

You are welcome to make your reservations online.  Please do not print out your tickets. They will be given to you when you arrive (and will not be torn). Please come early so there is not a crowd rush at show time.

DINNER: Line up and be served a delicious, home-cooked dinner, then find your own seats in our shaded courtyard.  Dietary restrictions or vegetarian requests must be made before noon the previous day.  No dinner reservations can be taken after 3 PM on the day of the show.
