Dolly Parton Selects The Great Smoky Mountains For Second Pirates Voyage Dinner And Show

The Water Spectacular is Slated to Open in Spring 2019

Keep an eye to the spyglass, mateys; Dolly’s pirates will be searching for treasure in the Great Smoky Mountains, next summer!

After nearly a decade of rave reviews and financial success on the Carolina coast, Parton’s newest Pirates Voyage dinner attraction is slated to open in the spring.

“The show has been so successful in Myrtle Beach that we kept looking at Pigeon Forge and wondering why we didn’t already have a Pirates show there,” Dolly said. “We have the perfect location, in one of the hottest areas of Pigeon Forge, and the time is now for my pirates to stake claim to the Great Smoky Mountains!”

When complete, the 21,000 square foot arena, adjacent to The Island in Pigeon Forge, will be the stage for Crimson and Sapphire pirates to battle on deck, in the water and in the sky above their full-sized pirate ships in a 15-foot-deep indoor lagoon. Spectacular acrobatic competitions, live animals and an original music score by Dolly Parton and Mark Brymer creates an immersive adventure experience all while guests enjoy a spectacular five-course pirate feast.

“We’re glad we can finally share Dolly’s exciting news,” Jim Rule, World Choice Investments CEO said. “For some time, we have been working on set and costume designs, unique show elements for this theater and animal and staff training. We’re all looking forward to opening in 2019.”

Additional details about the project will be released soon. Site construction is slated to begin in early January with an opening projected for spring.

Netflix has acquired the film “Dumplin’,” which features collaborations and original music from entertainment industry icon Dolly Parton.

“Dumplin’” is the story of the plus-size, teenage daughter of a former beauty queen, who signs up for her mom’s pageant as a protest that escalates when other contestants follow her footsteps, revolutionizing the pageant and their small Texas town.

Parton, who is an acclaimed songwriter/storyteller and one of the most honored female country performers of all time, contributed newly-recorded collaborations of some of her most popular songs in addition to six new original compositions co-written by Parton and Grammy nominee Linda Perry. Produced by Perry and Executive Produced by Parton, the soundtrack will be released worldwide on Nov. 30 on Dolly Records/RCA Nashville (Sony Music).

The soundtrack’s partial list of exceptional guest vocalists includes Sia, Miranda Lambert, Mavis Staples, Elle King, Alison Krauss, Rhonda Vincent, Danielle Macdonald, and Jennifer Aniston.

“Here I Am”

The debut track from Dumplin’ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is “Here I Am” performed by Parton and Sia. The song will be available for download and streaming on Sept. 14. This self-penned song was originally recorded by Parton and included on her Coat of Many Colors album (October 1971). This brand-new recording of “Here I Am” captures Parton and Sia’s striking vocal re-imagination of this classic album cut.

“Dumplin’” stars MacDonald (Bird Box, Patti Cake$) and Aniston (Upcoming Murder Mystery, Horrible Bosses, Marley and Me), in addition to Odeya Rush (Lady Bird, Goosebumps), Dove Cameron (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Liv and Maddie, Descendants), and Harold Perrineau (Claws, Lost). “Dumplin’” is directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, 27 Dresses).

Screenwriter Kristin Hahn wrote the adaptation of Julie Murphy’s No. 1 New York Times bestselling novel of the same name.
