Our 57th Season

The Bigfork Summer Playhouse celebrated its 57th Season of live professional theatre in 2016, and it was a ‘doosy’!
 We had another stellar season line up! Great entertainment, new faces in the company, a day on the lake, and a ‘swell’ place to spend some time.  If you missed us last season, put it on your calendar for next season.

Known by many as the “theatre by the bay,” the Bigfork Summer Playhouse is a past recipient of the Montana Governor’s Award for the Arts and boasts an OSCAR winner among our BSP alumni. J.K. Simmons won an OSCAR for best supporting actor in WHIPLASH. Come see where Simmons spent 7 seasons on stage and directing. See just what JK Simmonssets us apart from everyone else! Each season we recruit Broadway caliber acting and singing talent from across the country to bring our patrons the finest live professional theatre in the Northwest. Known for bringing the best of Broadway to the Rockies, each season we continue the tradition.
Our 2016 repertory theatre season productions were: Church Basement Ladies, Young Frankenstein, 42nd Street, Shrek – the musical and Grease. We also have a late summer show, Hits From the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, (volume 4 – a repeat theme with all new songs for this season)  Keep checking, we’ll have the 2017 lineup before Christmas.
