Announcing our 73rd Season Under the Kentucky Stars!
By Duke Ernsberger
June 10-July 2
Back by popular demand…and funnier than ever! This kooky spin on Bram Stoker’s Dracula will you rolling in the aisles! The struggling Valley Dale Playhouse is in need of a hit, and so it turns to a pompous playwright’s new (and ridiculously serious) take on a classic. But what starts as “real theatre” turns into absolute chaos as actors get stuck in coffins and literally swing from the rafters. Zany fun for the whole family! Rated G.
Southern Fried Nuptials
By Osborne and Eppler
July 5-July 23
New play premiere! Southern Fried Funeral made you laugh until you cried, so get ready for another round of Southern Fried Fun. The Fryes are back, and this time it’s a wedding that needs planning, not a funeral. But what if the bride gets cold feet…and what if her smokin’ hot ex shows up out of the blue with a big surprise? (Don’t worry if you missed the first chapter; the second is stand-alone funny!) Another big helping of family comedy—southern style! Rated G.
By William Missouri Downs
July 26-August 6
What if you were madly in love with someone who couldn’t see you—literally? Philosophy major-turned accountant, Phil, has a giant office crush on his boss’s secretary, but the gorgeous Sophia doesn’t even know Phil exists. What can a nice, but average-looking guy, do to get the attention of the gal of his dreams? Don’t miss this witty and fantastically farcical take on modern romance! Rated PG.

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 2021-2022 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.
