I was pleasantly surprised when I visited the Theater to see "Guys and Dolls". I didn't expect to see such professionalism and I agree with clivepheasant's comment that this musical could be transported to Broadway or more with no change whatsoever. The entire cast was simply perfect in their role but Matthew Krob stole my heart. Tall, dark and handsome... More

We visited this small theater next to the firehouse and thoroughly enjoyed the melodrama. You get to hoot and hiss at the characters I,e. The villan and the damsel in distress. The 60s Motown show afterward was even better. If you can't have fun here, you are probably not going to have fun anywhere. A great night of entertainment. Very... More

You have to really work at it to not have a good time here. The actors are great and their enthusiasm is contagious.

We visited the Theatre to see Guys and Dolls and can honestly say that the Musical could be transported to London or Broadway with no change of cast whatsoever. The cast could all sing,dance and act and it was a truly memorable and fun evening. Our only disapointment was that we were unable to see it again during our brief... More

We saw the musical Guys and Dolls. The acting and singing was exceptional. I encourage everyone to take the time to see a production there. Make reservations in advance, as groups book matinee shows, taking up most of the seating.

This small theater does a wonderful job - as well as I have seen in big cities. The acting, dancing and especially singing is very well done. The cast also works the concession stand before the show and they are all so friendly. A fun fun experience.

We just went for our 2nd time to the Butte Theater. We saw Guys & Dolls and LOVED it!! Such talented actors and actresses. Mel Moser, the Manager, was a joy to work with, taking all 35 of us with ease. The show was FABULOUS, the staff was endearing and it made for a very nice night. We hope this... More

I've been to the Butte theater several times to watch plays. I love local playhouses. Talk about up close and personal. I think the theater only seats a hundred or so. There is no bad seat in the house and I think most of the events are in the $20 range. The locals that put on the plays are great.... More
