MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) -- Singer Dolly Parton is hoisting the
Jolly Roger in Myrtle Beach as she opens her new dinner theater
this weekend.

Parton said Friday her western-themed Dixie Stampede show was
very successful over 19 years but says it was time for a change and
pirates are a theme that everyone can enjoy.

Parton says she started thinking of the new show about four
years ago. She says the opening was delayed a bit because of the
troubled economy.

Pirates Voyage features two pirate galleons and a sunken wreck
in a 15-foot deep indoor lagoon. It opens Friday evening with a VIP
performance and opens to the public Saturday night.

The show features pirate battles and mermaids and represents an
$11 million investment.
