Kentucky premiere! Straight from Broadway!
It’s a dark and stormy night, and you’ve been invited to a most unusual dinner party! You’re given an alias, a choice of weapons, and the host is, well, dead! So…whodunnit? And more importantly, who’s next? Join iconic oddballs Scarlet, Plum, White, Green, Peacock, and Mustard as they race to find the murderer before the body count at Boddy Manor stacks up! Rated PG.
Southern Fried Funeral
By Osborne and Eppler
July 6 – July 24 – Three week run!
Dewey Frye is dead, and the rest of his family is left to pick up the pieces – if they don’t kill each other first! Not only must Dorothy Frye deal with sudden widowhood, she must also contend with a snake-in-the-grass brother-in-law, a nosy church lady, and a couple of grown daughters who’ve decided to act like toddlers. Funerals bring out the worst, the best…and the funniest in people! A big-hearted comedy about family – Southern style! Rated G.
Jeeves in Bloom
Adapted by Margaret Raether
from the stories of PG Wodehouse
July 27 – August 7 — Two week run!
The quiet English countryside will never be the same after Bertie Wooster and his unflappable butler, Jeeves, pay a visit! What starts as a plan to play matchmaker for a tongue-tied, newt-loving friend goes hilariously wrong. Soon Bertie is fending off unwanted amorous advances, a bungling burglary, and a homicidal French chef! Can the one and only Jeeves save the day? A delightfully silly and high-energy comedy!

August 13 & 14

Pioneer Playhouse shows are held in our historic outdoor amphitheater. There is always a slight risk of rain when attending shows outside.
AT THIS TIME DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS, PERFORMANCES FOR 2020-2021 WILL NOT BE HELD INDOORS.
Shows are not considered rained out until show time. We may delay or pause to allow weather to pass.
If you choose not to attend a performance due to weather, you must call ahead to cancel or reschedule your ticket purchase. If you do not come and the show is held, we will not honor your ticket for a future performance.
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.
Mask policy – The safety of our cast, staff and patrons is of utmost importance to us. We are considering mask guidelines in accordance with the rapidly changing guidelines. At this time, masks are not required when in your seat or outdoors apart from others. We do ask that you wear a mask when in the restrooms or in lines/groups with other patrons.
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: we will serve our delicious barbecue dinner but it will be brought to your table. Any reservation should tell us how many chicken and how many pork preferences in your party. No reservations can be taken after 3PM on the day of show.
