We had read about this theater a while back in a WV tourism guide and I was very curious to see them. The performance was good, and the comedy routines and banter between cast members was great. The music was more contemporary than I expected -- given the name, I expected more of a bluegrass or mountain music feel to it. The visual effects projected on the screen above the players did not really add anything to the performance. And while we understand the satire angle behind their spoofs of the Bee Gees, Gloria Gaynor, Tiny Tim, etc., I would much rather have seen the ensemble being themselves! With all that said, if you are in Elkins, their two-hour show is worth seeing for a night's entertainment and to support a great local family business.

A very pleasant surprise! A little comedy and good music. A very talented young man that sang "I can only imagine" that us "goose bumps" when he sang with beautiful expression on this song. I hope that they keep this song in every concert. The show was about 2 1/2 hours and was never boring. We traveled from NJ.

Several of us had been here before and for some it was a first time experience. The show had something for everyone to enjoy and a whole lot of it! The talent level is very high and each performer has a great deal of charm and "pizazz". The show offers a variety of music, comedy, impersonations and many costume changes. Be sure to watch for the supremely talented fiddle player who seems able to play just about every instrument. Don't miss this show when you are in Elkins.

We where there with a tour group. The performances where wonderful this family is a very talented group of people. While there they were told that it was my 70th Birthday so they made a point of having me stand and be recognized to all those in attendance at their evening show.
