I saw Cowpokes and Petticoats at Macks Inn Pinecone PLayhouse. The actors were talented and did the best they could with a very slow, boring and outdated stage script. I'm sure my great Grandmother would have liked this play. I, on the other hand, did not. I could barely stay awake! I'm speechless the owners would pick a play reminiscent... More

Thanks for coming to the show. I' m so sorry that you didn't enjoy Cowpokes. It has been well received by our audiences this summer and especially these past few weeks! Some people love HeeHaw! We will keep trying to win you over and keep you awake! Kind regards, Lisa Carter 208-558-7871 More

What a wonderful time we all had together. We have 2 teenagers and a college age who was home for a visit. I wanted to do something that I thought everyone would enjoy so I booked a cabin and we had dinner at the playhouse theater. Everyone had so much fun. The play was so entertaining and well done.

Have gone to Mack's Inn before, so we were really disappointed with the changes. New owners, new meal (not as good), different talent. The actor's singing was great, but other things detracted from them. For example, after dinner and before the show, they now pass a hat asking for tips. We were shocked. The prices have gone up, and then... More

We will keep trying to incorporate the things that make our little Playhouse unique and special. Live music, a hearty meal and family friendly entertainment. Hopefully you will come back and find something you like! Kind Regards, Lisa Carter More

We've gone to the macks inn playhouse every year for the last 8 years and loved (now) 7 of the 8 shows.This year was markedly different than the others. The cast is small and limited and only half of it belongs in show biz. You have to give them credit for trying, the effort is certainly there but the talent... More

Talk about talent...these kids (from all over the US) are great! We saw 2 shows (they run 6 nights a week, alternating shows each night) and both were awesome. My favorite was "The Andrews Brothers!"

Show was a hoot! Very talented performers. Kids (5,9&14 yrs) loved it. Next time, we will probably eat elsewhere and just catch the show...no options for picky eaters and no dessert!

there is not a lot to do in West Yellowstone in the winter in the evenings. This was a fun respite from the hotel for the evening! The food was only average, but the show was funny and we enjoyed ourselves. Would do it again.

We were visiting the park and staying in West Yellowstone. We were having dinner and a group of people in costume came in singing. It was a traveling advertisement for the playhouse. How fun. So we decided that the next evening we would go. it ws funny and the singing was good. It was family appropriate and our 10 year... More

We enjoyed seeing a play that was held at this theater. The performance was very solid for an amateur production with the cast comprised of college students. The meal was terribly lacking in quality and quantity. If we were given the choice we would have passed on the meal and just watched the production.

Just returned from West Yellowstone and went to see Forever Plaid. Before the Play we ate dinner and it was very good. Had the Option of a Huckleberry Chicken or a Tri-tip Steak. I had a little bit of both and I enjoyed it. Try the chimichurri sauce on the tri-tip. The play was very fun. Kept up laughing. My... More
