PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (Dec. 1, 2014) – The cast of the “Hatfield and McCoy Christmas Disaster Dinner Show” in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., is feuding more than ever. Mayor Timothy O’Reilly (played by Tim Harleroad) is plotting to steal the Hatfields’ and the McCoys’ land in order to build some time-share property. When the two families discover his plans, they drop their feud and band together to do a “Scrooge” number on him.
“The Hatfield and McCoy Christmas Disaster Dinner Show” tells a hilarious story inspired by real-life tragic events. The musical clogging show is full of comedy, romance, forgiveness and laughter with many holiday twists.
