Our 62nd Season

Even through these ‘strange Coronavirus’ times, the Bigfork Summer Playhouse is planning to celebrate its 62nd Season of live professional theatre in 2021.
We plan to begin at our normal, June 5, opening date – but we still plan on additional cleaning, sanitizing, social distancing, and personal safety protocols.

We have another stellar season line up! Several new shows and some favorites: Jersey Boys, 9 to 5, Bonnie & Clyde, Lucky Stiff and The HITS of the ’50s, ’60s & ’70s. This summer we plan to bring back the ever popular Benefit Revue (scholarship show and gala).

Great entertainment, new faces in the company, shows you’ve never seen at BSP, a day on the lake, and a ‘swell’ place to spend some time in Bigfork.

Covid-19 Updates concerned with the BSP 2021 season

The 2021 summer season may look a bit different while we continue to encourage social distancing to protect our actors, staff, and guests.  Seating is alternating with an open row and a checkboard style behind.  Masks are no longer required, but we suggest that you wear a mask when you enter the building until you are seated, if not for you, for the comfort of all the other patrons.

We are doing everything we can to keep BSP open again this summer, so some new rules and some old rules will be in effect.  In addition to extra cleaning and sanitizing efforts, there will be hand sanitizer located in various stations at the theatre, we’ll provide masks to those that want one, and we’ll try to keep the congestion down in the lobby and as you enter or exit the theatre.  If there are any changes to local or state guidelines, those may be implemented without notice.  We ask for your understanding as we work through these interesting times.

Please be patient with the ‘other side’ of the mask issue.  (be kind, be aware and be courteous to others) If you are still terrified of Corona Virus, please consider that this is a large enclosed space with many other people, and that this might not be the best place for you this season.

We are excited that we are able to offer you another great season of the finest theatre in the Northwest!


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 several Emmy & OSCAR winners among our BSP alumni.  Most recently, 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 sets 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.
