Comedy under the stars
Danville's , Pioneer Playhouse is featuring comedy under the stars. After having to cancel nearly all of the 2020 season due to Covid-19 the playhouse will once again feature laughter in its starlit and moonlight-lit outdoor amphitheater.
Dinner and the show starts at 7:00 pm. For those wishing to attend only the show? The show begins at 8:30.
In a concession to the not-yet-completely-gone pandemic in the event of rain the shows will not be moved inside. Instead local patrons can receive a rain check and others a full refund.

Kentucky premiere! Straight from Broadway!
It’s a dark and stormy night, and you’ve been invited to a most unusual dinner party! You’re given an alias, a choice of weapons, and the host is, well, dead! So…whodunnit?

Southern Fried Funeral By Osborne and Eppler July 6 – July 24 – Three week run!
Dewey Frye is dead, and the rest of his family is left to pick up the pieces – if they don’t kill each other first! Not only must Dorothy Frye deal with sudden widowhood, she must also contend with a snake-in-the-grass brother-in-law, a nosy church lady, and a couple of grown daughters who’ve decided to act like toddlers. Funerals bring out the worst, the best…and the funniest in people! A big-hearted comedy about family – Southern style! Rated G.
Jeeves in Bloom Adapted by Margaret Raether from the stories of PG Wodehouse July 27 – August 7 — Two week run!
The quiet English countryside will never be the same after Bertie Wooster and his unflappable butler, Jeeves, pay a visit! What starts as a plan to play matchmaker for a tongue-tied, newt-loving friend goes hilariously wrong. Soon Bertie is fending off unwanted amorous advances, a bungling burglary, and a homicidal French chef! Can the one and only Jeeves save the day? A delightfully silly and high-energy comedy! Rated G.
