There's one place in Pigeon Forge where there's nothing but fussing, fighting and feuding going on all year long. And audiences love it. The Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show, which is loosely based on the famous Hatfield and McCoy feud in West Virginia, pits family against family and features a cast of mountain characters who generate more hilarity than hostility as they brandish rifles, banjos and rubber chickens to comedic effect.
Blending family comedy with country, bluegrass and gospel music in a celebration of mountain culture, the show is an interactive experience in more ways than one. For starters, guests are designated as either Hatfields or McCoys upon entering the theater and seated in their assigned clan's section of the theater.
Throughout the show, audience members participate in the good-natured rivalry, which includes two different live bands-one for each family. From there, the cast of singers, actors and award-winning cloggers steer the action through the evening to its hilarious climax.
Guests also get in on the act when the dinner bell rings. The evening starts off with a home-style feast served by the show's cast. Anchored by items with names like Feudin' Fried Chicken and Bust Y'ur Jeans Pinto Beans, the fare includes pulled pork barbecue, creamy soup, mashed potatoes, cornbread, dessert and drinks.
