Country Tonite Theatre
The Country Tonite Show originated in 1992 at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas, opened in Branson, MO in 1994 and in 1997 established the benchmark for what the Smoky Mountain area is today – Quality entertainment for the entire family.
The year 2000 was a milestone for the Country Tonite Theatre in Pigeon Forge when it became independent from the other Country Tonite Theatres allowing the Pigeon Forge theatre the flexibility to rise above and surpass customer expectations.
Now in its 15th spectacular season, you’ll find your favorite country classics made famous by country music’s most legendary artists along with the country hits of today. You will enjoy dynamic singing and dancing, side-splitting comedy, powerful gospel and American Patriotism. All of this produced with new staging, dramatic scenery and elaborate costumes in a 1500 seats multi-million dollar theatre with two giant video screens.
This high-energy, full-scale production receives more awards than any other show in the Smokies!
Show has some of the best talent in town. The show has been re-programed very successfully. The Christmas show is Great! Beautiful song arrangements awesome singers and dancers. Costuming is quality. . 17 year old Willow picks a guitar on par with Champions. The beautiful Melinda's voice is amazing. Musicians from some of the biggest bans in the country. Great entertainment!!!
Great entertainment! My husband & I have been many times over our 18 years of marriage & tonight we brought my best friend Ellen. The music, singing, & dancing make it wonderful to see. They change the show & costumes every year so it doesn't get stale. They also have a Celebrity Concert series where you can see the Stars of Country Music. It really can't be beat and when you pick out a Celebrity Concert to attend, they give you a BIG discount on the Country Tonight Concert! I can't say enough good things about this show. This visit we found that a star/singer/musician of the Country Tonight Cast comes from Cleveland, Tennessee where we live. After the 2 Hour Show is finished, the casts comes to the front of the Theatre to meet & greet the audience. They are so friendly & thank you numerous times for coming to their Theatre to see the performance!
The young, blonde female dancer was very good. The young lady from South Carolina needs to sing more, she's too good to be used so little. The band was awesome. Too much time spent on 12 year old Sheldon Tyson. He may be able to sing after puberty but not that well right now. Singing the complete songs instead of snippets would be nice also. Still enjoyed myself immensely and will attend next trip here.
I have been to this show many times over the years and always enjoy it. In fact I would give it five stars every other time. The difference this time was giving the 12 year old boy so much stage time. I saw him when he first joined the cast and he was good for a child. However as he had got older his voice isn't the same and in fact sounded pretty horrible. The rest of the show is great as always. However it's time to move on from the child.
I loved this show! The performers were great! The songs, musicians, and choreography were excellent! The costumes had great variety, imagination, and construction. The tribute section was fun, highlighting country legends and giving a nod to current stars. Faith, family, first responders, and military heroes were honored in a moving series of songs. I would recommend this show to anyone.
