View Full Version : KroneDaddy's New Job

05-08-2011, 06:03 PM
After 27 years of working for Carnival Cruise Lines, I have left them and am now employed by Fee/Hedrick Family Entertainment in Pigeon Forge TN. I am the lead in their new show at The Hatfield and McCoys Dinner Show. In addition to acting and playing the banjo, I co-wrote the show and am acting as Musical Director. It is a big show, cast of 20, and the theater seats about 750. I am very excited about this and am loving my new job.

I am hoping eventually this will allow me to do a haunt again, maybe there in Pigeon Forge in a few years once I get good and settled. Right now my job has taken all my spare time. If you are in Pigeon Forge please look me up. Sorry I cant get discounts for the show since it is a dinner show. I just wanted to let you, my haunt buddies to know about my new job and that I am off the ships. Kelly, you guys gotta come to Pigeon Forge to see me next time.

Here are some pics of the building of the facade on the renovated theater. Wish I had these guys building me a facade. This was about a $3M refit, including the show sets, kitchen refit, etc.

My in-laws own a time share in Gatlinburg and the wife and I get up there every couple of years. Good luck with the new position...

Good luck Tim,''

Think you can handle being on dry land for an extended period of time????

Can you at least get a discount on future cruises as a customer!!!!!

So are you a Hatfield or a McCoy?????

Good luck!!!

Congrats. Looks like a fun gig. Maybe on your day off you can head over to the Ripleys haunt in Gatlinburg and give them some much needed advice.
