The performances are very entertaining and the performers are top notch. There is not a bad seat in the house and everyone is super nice. I love that the performers greet you as you leave... More

My husband and I were on a bus trip so we saw two shows here, one a matinee and one an evening performance. We are not country western fans so the Hee Haw inspired Christmas program wasn't exactly our cup of tea, but the musicians were exceptional for the matinee. They were good at what they did. The evening Christmas... More

This was our first visit to the Playhouse. The musicians/singers in the show were very good and it was entertaining. Good entertainment for a good price.

The Sounds of Memphis Show is one of outstanding entertainment and musical talent. The depth of performers exceeds all other show I have seen locally. With a horn section and multiple performers singing Otis, Elvis, JerryLee and other Memphis favorites, this show is sure to please any music fan!

Badgett Playhouse offers Branson-style entertainment on a smaller scale right here in Western Kentucky. The talent is great, they have a variety of shows, and it's a great value! I recently saw the Outlaws of Country Music show, which again had some great talent. The skit part needed some editing but the music was good. I'd give it 3.5 stars... More

Went to see The Outlaws of Country Music. Good singing... maybe average storyline. Definitely not as good as the last show we saw there. Doesn't mean we wont be back for a different show.

Last minute decision! My husband and I are locals and we have seen just about every show put on at the Badgett Playhouse. We are loyal fans and noticed that they were doing a new show, Memphis. It has been held over 2x since opening. I called Friday night at 6:30 pm and was able to purchase tickets. We were... More

The best surprise on the trip-great affordable entertaining show! We are planning a return trip. We've been to Branson and the Playhouse does measure up!

Went to Badgett to hear the songwriters for the evening, they were wonderful. Especially enjoyed the husband and wife team. Got our tickets thru Patti's Inn & Suites when we booked our rooms. All I had to do was go to box office that night and pick up our tickets.
