Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre
Jul 25, 2012
If you’re not familiar with this unique live show in the heart of downtown Gatlinburg, then you’re long overdue for an introduction. Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre is unlike any other production in the Smokies, having presented two original comedy musicals each season for the past 35 years. In fact, it’s the longest running show in the area, and once you’ve seen it, you’ll understand why.
Sweet Fanny Adams is part Monty Python, part turn-of-the-century music house. The humor is broad, full of slapstick and downright silly, but it’s also undeniably hilarious. And one of the great things about the shows at Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre is that they’re enjoyable for all ages. The auditorium seats fewer than 200 and the stage is small, but once the lights go down, the comedy is dished out in huge portions.
The first half of each evening consists of a short musical comedy courtesy of the Great Victorian Amusement Company, the theater’s troupe of performers. After the intermission, the show forges ahead with an old-fashioned audience sing-along and a vaudeville-style revue of music and comedy sketches.
