Everyone’s favorite Smoky Mountain native is bringing even more great entertainment to Pigeon Forge! It was recently announced that country music legend Dolly Parton is launching a brand new show in the spring of 2017. To help you make the most of your next vacation, Top Cabin Rentals has put together everything we know about the new Dolly Parton dinner show.
A Show Close to Dolly’s Heart
The new dinner attraction won’t just have Dolly’s name on it; it will be a deeply personal show about the people and environment that shaped her upbringing. Here is what Dolly had to say about the show:
“This new story is very special to me. 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.”
Dolly and her family have deep roots in the Smokies. The singer grew up in Sevier County in a one-room cabin, the fourth of 12 children. Although her family had very little money, the Parton clan was rich with music, faith, and love.
Dolly’s childhood has recently been chronicled in a number of highly successful TV movies. The Coat of Many Colors movie tells the famous story of the patchwork coat that Dolly sings about in the hit song of the same name. The movie was so popular that it spawned a sequel, Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love, an uplifting holiday tale inspired by true events.
The new dinner show is expected to share the same inspirational themes and great family values as Dolly’s TV movies. Parton played a central role in designing and producing the new show.
Taking the Place of Dolly’s Lumberjack Adventure
The new Dolly Parton dinner show is replacing Dolly’s Lumberjack Adventure, a lumberjack-themed show in Pigeon Forge that has ceased production. The theater is located at 2713 Parkway, right next door to The Island shopping complex. If you have pre-purchased tickets for a Lumberjack Adventure show, you can contact the box office at 844-322-4400 for reticketing.
