Banner Elk theater packages are a great way to enjoy this walkable resort town in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Packages start at $119 per couple and include: one night of lodging at a choice of accommodations, two tickets to an Ensemble Stage production, discount dining at Banner Elk Cafe & Lodge, and breakfast the next morning at your lodging.
Ensemble Stage presents professional theater year-round in the intimately-renovated auditorium at Historic Banner Elk School in the heart of town. It is a short walk to the theater from the Perry House Bed & Breakfast and the Azalea Inn Bed Breakfast & Cottages. The Best Western Mountain Lodge is just 1.3 miles from the theater.
Actors are hired from across the country for a playbill that includes comedies, dramas, murder mysteries, holiday shows and more.
Packages include 15% off vouchers to Banner Elk Cafe & Lodge, which offers a wide menu to please most appetites. Banner Elk is known as the Culinary Hot Spot of the High Country and several restaurants are within walking distance of the theater. To see more restaurants, click here.
