“The Gandy Dancer Theatre opened in May of 2011”, Stephens said, “and is West Virginia’s only Branson-style dinner theatre.  Our featured show runs from April through October, with several shows in between.  Whether you want singing, dancing, amazing musicians, a Patriotic Tribute for Armed Forces Day, an evening with Elvis, or a hilarious Murder Mystery Dinner, the Gandy Dancer has something to come back for all year long,” she said. 

“Beginning the Friday after Thanksgiving, our Mountain Memories Christmas show is always a favorite, as is a very special event – Christmas with Elvis.  The year ends with a New Year’s Eve Murder Mystery,” Stephens said.  The Gandy Dancer Theatre is located at 359 Beverly Pike next to the Steer Steak House in Elkins.  For more information, call (304) 636-4935, or go on-line to   www.GandyDancerTheatre.com
