About Theatre West Virginia:
Theatre West Virginia was founded in 1955 as the West Virginia Historical Drama Association by concerned citizens from Southern West Virginia to present West Virginia's unique culture to as wide an audience as possible.

Founders included former Governor Hulett C Smith, Leo Vecellio, Charles Hodel, C.S. Lewis, Harry Anderson, Waldo Lafon, M.W. Powers and others who helped fund the project.

In 1961, their dream became a reality with the opening of Honey in the Rock. The dramatic view of the New River Gorge coupled with a perfectly designed Amphitheatre in Grandview have now provided more than one million visitors with the excitement of outdoor musical drama. Theatre West Virginia continues to be overseen by community minded Southern West Virginians to promote the arts, culture and tourism in the Mountain State. For more information, visit
