A new dinner theater show that tells the story of Dolly Parton’s family will open this spring in the former Lumberjack Adventure theatre on the Parkway in Pigeon Forge.
The musical theater production with its high–flying acrobats and lumberjack competitions at Lumberjack Adventure will not be returning for the 2017 season as show owners announced today that the theater will instead host a show that celebrates the family of Dolly Parton and the mountains of east Tennessee.
“This new story is very special to me,” Parton explained. That is why during my first visit to the Great Smoky Mountains this year I will open a new show that celebrates my family before I was born. With the success of my family stories Coat of Many Colors and Christmas of Many Colors – Circle of Love over the last two years, I knew this was a story I wanted to tell and the theatre in Pigeon Forge near the Island is the perfect venue.”
Jim Rule, CEO of World Choice Investments, LLC, said this new show is what the customers are asking for. “We will release more details about Dolly’s story soon. We have been telling stories for 30 years and this new show showcases the world-class storytelling of Dolly and celebrates the Great Smoky Mountains and her family.”
Pre-purchased ticket holders for a Lumberjack Adventure show scheduled in 2017 should contact the box office at 844-322-4400 for re-ticketing.
Parton and World Choice Investments acquired the Lumberjack Feud Dinner Show property in 2015, rebranding it as Dolly Parton’s Lumberjack Adventure and investing $25 million into construction and renovations before opening in May 2016.
