Not Just In Summer!

The Playhouse is a beautiful venue to see fantastic talent all year long, don't be fooled by the name! The remodeled theater has great sound and views from ANY seat in the house.

I attended young Frankenstein with my mom and my husband. It was a great time! The show was hilarious and actors were very good. Highly recommend taking in a show here if you are visiting the flathead lake area.

Went to the season ending performance of Shrek. Ages in our group ranged from 8 to 44. Surprisingly some people had very young children there for a 2 hour musical that started at 8pm. Made for some noisy disruptions as kids became both tired and disinterested. Other than that, the evening could not have been better. Exceptionally entertaining. Some very... More

It's literally the very last place you would expect to see the level of talent this theatre consistently attracts. And yet--it does. We saw 42nd Street, and the production was first-rate! We were astonished. And we were told that some of the actors do go right to Broadway from that theatre program! So do yourself a favor and make sure... More

You won't be disappointed if you spend an evening at Bigfork's Summer Playhouse & your faith in the talent of so many young people from across the US will be reaffirmed! Each summer talented young adults, many of whom are college students, gather to present outstanding repertoire productions. Last night we saw 42 nd Street & the performance wonderful. Look... More

What a marvelous place! The performing arts center in downtown Bigfork offers 4 musicals. A different how each night for 4 nights in a row. They are open Tuesday through Saturday evening and Sunday Matinees. A young amazingly talented cast, a top notch facility for performing arts. Comfortable seating, not a bad seat in the house. Great sound design. Shows... More

We saw 42nd Street. It was non stop enjoyment. The acting, singing and dancing were as good as it gets. The theater is lovely with not a bad seat in the house. We were really surprised at the quality in a small town like Big Fork. We booked a month ahead and got 3rd row seats. The show was a... More

My family of 11 take an annual vacation each year. This year we went to Flathead Lake in MT. While there we attended a showing of Shrek at the Bigfork Summer Playhouse. Absolutely wonderful. The surprising part was how good the players were. The young children, ages 3 through 8, were captivated and the adults were very pleased. I've seen... More

My family and I saw Grease and it was fantastic. It's a great place to see plays! The inside was bigger than I thought it would be, and the staff was very polite there! The theater itself was very clean and the seats were comfortable. The actors in the play new their lines, and it was fantastic.

We've been to some productions in past years, some good, some a bit lacking. I think the 2016 cast is the best I've seen. We loved all the dancing and vocals in 42nd Street. I'm looking forward to Grease tomorrow. There's no bad seats in the house and the alternating schedule means tourists can always find a show to see.
