BOLDO — Where can you see Patsy Cline, Elvis, Ray Charles, Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix and more classic performers all in one place?

This Friday you can see them at Glassland’s grand opening.

The doors will open at 5 p.m. and the show will start at 7 p.m. and end at 10 p.m. The price is $20 per adult and $5 for kids 17 and under. Those admission prices will include dinner.

The new facility is being billed by owners Robert and Pam Glass as fun for the entire family, with an arcade and children’s area in view of the stage with performers.

To celebrate the opening, celebrity impersonator Pete Peterkin is flying in from Las Vegas to perform for two hours. The other hour of the show will feature three local impersonators.

Robert Glass, who spent two years working at Dollywood, five years in Vegas and two years performing as Elvis for the Presley family at Graceland, will also be performing, along with Diane Whittemore as Patsy Cline and Tommy Murray who impersonates Marty Robins and Ray Stevens.

There will also a live crocodile available for pictures.

After the opening, the venue will be open for performances on Friday and Saturday night, and Monday, Tuesday and Thursday the arcade will be open for kids, although no children can be left at the location without parents.

There will be no alcohol or smoking and every event will be geared toward maintaining the family atmosphere.

Future events, such as a Fall Festival on Nov. 9 and a gospel night beginning in mid-October, are being planned and the couple hopes to get input from patrons on what they want to see in the area.

“We’re just going to see what people want and what would be good for families and kids,” Pam Glass said. “We’re trying to bring families together and keep them entertained together.”

Glassland is located at 9415 Hwy. 78 east of Jasper. For more information, call (205) 275-8686.
