Note on safety precautions. Please read!

We are opening July 31st!  

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

Seating capacity will be reduced to promote social distancing. Masks for patrons are required. Only one family member should come to the box office window.  You are welcome to make reservations online, but please do not print them out. They will be given to you when you come to the show  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 boxed and brought to your table. Any reservation should tell us how many chicken and how many beef preferences in your party.  No reservations can be taken after 3PM on the day of show.

Important: Shortened 2020 Season will begin July 31

Pioneer Playhouse will open and celebrate our 71st season with an awesome, but limited number of shows.  This difficult decision was made based on the Commonwealth of Kentucky’s current guidelines for dealing with the Covid-19 crisis.  

MAYBE BABY, IT’S YOU, a hilarious romantic comedy, will open on Friday, July 31 and run through August 15 (Tuesdays – Saturdays.)  Our SPECIAL STAND-UP COMEDY WEEKEND STARRING LEE CRUSE will complete our 2020 season with shows on August 21 and 22.  Pre-show dinners will be available for a limited number (reservations required.)  For the health and safety of our patrons, we will have reduced and staggered seating per state guidelines.  We are outdoors and under the stars – and that’s a plus!
