Uncle Jimmy is BACK IN TOWN!!
WELCOME BACK TO OUR 41ST YEAR OF ENTERTAINMENT!
Donk's Theater, home of Virginia's Li'l Ole Opry opened its doors in 1975 to provide family-friendly entertainment at affordable prices. Last year, we celebrated 40 years in the entertainment business! We were able to reconnect with friends, fellow musicians, and audience members that we hadn't seen in years and it was magical.
Although we suffered the loss of our beloved "home", Donk's Theater, earlier this year, we have decided that the SHOW MUST GO ON! The owner of Donk's has stated that she plans to rebuild it. In the meantime, thanks to the generosity of the Mathews County School System, we will be hosting performances in the Harry M. Ward Auditorium at MATHEWS HIGH SCHOOL throughout 2016!
Please see our Schedule page for show dates and featured acts!
NOW, MORE THAN EVER, WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT! YOUR PRESENCE AT OUR SHOWS THIS YEAR WOULD MEAN SO MUCH TO US!
God continues to bless us and He is GOOD!!
Our Donk's family has been overwhelmed with messages, texts, emails, facebook posts, calls, etc. from those of you who share in our shock and grief over the loss of Donk's Theater. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your gentle kindness.
