 DOLLY PARTON TO WELCOME BURT REYNOLDS AND REBA McENTIRE
 TO DOLLYWOOD'S 7TH GRAND OPENING APRIL 25-26, 1992
 Parton to Unveil Showstreet, Dollywood's Biggest Addition Ever
 PIGEON FORGE, Tenn., March 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Dolly Parton says her goal at Dollywood's Seventh Annual Grand Opening Weekend on April 25 and 26 is to dedicate this year's opening to all her show business friends.
 To do that, she's surrounding herself with some special people: Burt Reynolds, popular movie star and Emmy-winning leading man in the hit television series "Evening Shade," and singer Reba McEntire, four-time Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year.
 Reynolds and Parton will be performing in Dollywood's Celebrity Theatre on Saturday, April 25 at 2:00 and 7:00 p.m. while Reba and Dolly will perform on Sunday, April 26 at the same times. The net proceeds from all four concerts go to the Dollywood Foundation, the non-profit public organization founded by Dolly to support educational programs in Sevier County, Tenn., where Dolly was born.
 The concerts will be part of this year's Grand Opening weekend, which will mark the unveiling of "Showstreet," Dollywood's biggest addition to date. Some of Showstreet's features include Radio Square (with Dolly's own station WDLY), Showstreet Palace, the Butterfly Emporium, and the Backstage Restaurant.
 On Saturday, April 25, at 9:00 a.m., Reynolds will join Dolly to dedicate Showstreet during Dollywood's Grand Opening Ceremonies. Dolly will honor Reynolds and many others from the entertainment world when she unveils Showstreet's new "Friendship Gardens," which features a walkway with the names of her famous friends.
 "I can't think of a better way to spend a Spring weekend than to be at Dollywood surrounded by fun and friends," Dolly Parton said. "With Burt, Reba, and 'Showstreet,'" this year's Grand Opening promises to be the best yet."
 "It's going to be great to work with Dolly again," said Reynolds, who has starred with Dolly on both the large and small screen. "Out of all the friends Dolly has in show business, I'm glad she's picked me to help her kick off Dollywood's Grand Opening this year."
 On Saturday, March 7 at 9:00 a.m. EST, tickets for the April 25 and 26 Benefit Concerts go on sale through the Dollywood Foundation. Most of the concert tickets are $35 and $50, with a very limited number of preferred seating locations priced at $100, $250, and $500 each. A portion of each ticket price is a tax deductible donation to the Dollywood Foundation.
