Dolly Parton’s dinner theater company announced Friday it has purchased Fee Hedrick Entertainment, which includes a number of other dinner theaters in Pigeon Forge.
World Choice Investments, Parton’s operating partner, will now operate five theater attractions in Pigeon Forge, which will now include Comedy Barn, Hatfield & McCoy and Smoky Mountain Opry.
“My theater production company just purchased Fee Hedrick Entertainment, and I am so excited to have more family entertainment to present to our guests in Pigeon Forge. In 2019, we’ll operate Comedy Barn, Hatfield & McCoy and Smoky Mountain Opry in the same way folks have come to remember them,” Parton said. “David, Jim and their team have done a great job with these shows through the years and, for now, we don’t plan to change anything. They are fun family entertainment, and that is the business I’m in.”
The terms of the purchase are private.
