  • The Trail of the Lonesome Pine Celebrates 50 Years

    by Casey | Posted on June 7th, 2013

    If you’re looking for a little bit of heritage and nostalgia, as well as a way to be included in something as notable as the 50th anniversary of the longest continually running outdoor drama in Virginia, head to Big Stone Gap this summer.

    The Trial of the Lonesome Pine logoThe Trail of the Lonesome Pine is an outdoor drama based on the novel by John Fox, Jr. that tells of a sweet Appalachian girl and a handsome miner. As the brochure puts it,

    “This is a musical drama that depicts the story of the great boom in Southwest Virginia when the discovery of coal and iron ore forced the lusty, proud mountain people into making many drastic changes in their way of life.”

    Mark one weekend this summer (maybe June 21, opening weekend?) to adventure to the June Tolliver Playhouse for this, the official Outdoor Drama of Virginia.

    • Rates: $15/Adult; $12/Senior 55 and older; $8/child aged 6-12; $8/person in a group of 15 or more
    • Show Times: Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings with the box office opening at 7 p.m. and pre-show performances from 7:15 to 7:45 p.m.

    LOVE is at the heart of every Virginia vacation. Virginia is for Lovers.
