Our 61st Season
Even through these ‘strange Coronavirus’ times, the Bigfork Summer Playhouse is currently celebrating its 61st Season of live professional theatre in 2020.
We had to begin later than normal – July 2 – but we still plan to stay open with additional cleaning, sanitizing, social distancing, and personal safety protocols. The updated schedule is up and we are selling tickets. We have another stellar season line up! All new shows – never before performed on the BSP stage The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Newsies, Something Rotten, Sister Act and The HITS of the ’50s, ’60s & ’70s. Due to late scheduling, we had to cancel our early season Country show and 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 is sure to be found in Bigfork. We are doing everything possible to help with social distancing without sacrificing your opportunity to see exceptional LIVE entertainment. Seating will be limited this season! So get out of your Jameez, put on your mask, shut your TV off, and put us on your calendar for this season – our 61st!

Covid-19 Updates concerned with the BSP 2020 season
The 61st season of the Bigfork Summer Playhouse is underway. The 2020 summer season looks a bit different while we encourage social distancing to protect our actors, staff, and guests. Seating is checkboard style. When reserving tickets, we are doing daily checks to keep social distancing. Purchase any available green ticket and we will try to separate you from other patrons. Masks are now required per the Governor’s July 15th Directive. We ask that you always wear a mask while inside the building, if not for you, for the comfort of all the other patrons.
We are doing everything we can to keep BSP open this summer, so some new 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 need 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. 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.
