Our 56th Season
at the Bigfork Summer Playhouse

Lobby leading to Bigfork Summer Playhouse - Bigfork MontanaThe Bigfork Summer Playhouse celebrated its 56th Season of live professional theatre in 2015. We had another stellar season! Great entertainment, new faces in the company, a day on the lake, and a ‘swell’ place to spend some time.

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 can now boast that we have an OSCAR winner among our BSP alumni. This year 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 2015 repertory theatre season productions were: Smokey Joe’s Cafe, Man of LaMancha, The Addams Family, Annie and Footloose. We also had a late summer show, Hits From the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, (volume 3 – a repeat theme with all new songs for this season)
