Horseshoe Bend Theatre
The Horseshoe Bend Theatre was established in the early 1970s by Albert C. Gannaway as a venue for the Ozark Jamboree Country Music Television show. Later, under the direction of promoter Gene Williams, the theatre hosted the likes of Dolly Parton, Ernest Tubbs, Mickey Gilley and a miriad of other Country Western stars.
During the 1990s the stage sat vacant with only an occassional children's play or small production until 2006 when Melodie Clemmons and the Alta Street Blues Band dusted off the seats and curtains and began a monthly variety show in the old theatre. Now in its 6th year, the Music in the Mountains gang includes the Hwy. 289 Band and regulars Jerry Kipper, Ron Hart, Brenda Doty and guest talent from around the Bend and around the surrounding area. Recent performances have included Penny Wolfe, Sarah Jo Roark and American Idol contestant Lauren Gray.
The old theatre which once boasted the rising stars of the 70s now hosts the talent of the new melinnium!
