Mack's Inn Playhouse is a summer stock dinner theatre located in Island Park, Idaho. In 2008, Andrew & Julie Durrant, began a lease on the building and changed the name from Mack's Inn Dinner Theater. The couple launched the theater into a new, fresh direction. The Playhouse offers family friendly musical spoofs. All food is cooked on site and meals offered include Prime Rib or Chicken. Past shows include: "Less Miserable;A Whole Lot LESS Miserable", "Butch Cassidy and the SUN Burnt Kid", "Phantom of the Grand Ole Opry", and "HOME School Musical". In 2012, the Durrant's packed up and moved to St. George Utah and started a year round dinner theatre called "Rattlin' D Playhouse". In May 2013, Lisa and Jeff Carter from West Yellowstone relocated the Pinecone Playhouse to occupy the space. Pinecone Playhouse at Mack's Inn continues to offer the very best in family friendly entertainment. Join us for live music and lots of laughs!

We make it a point to visit Mack's Inn when we get up Island Park. We go almost every summer. It is a good night out for the family. It is more lid back and usually slapstick, not amazing by any stretch. But the kids like it and I am glad they continue to put on the shows.

Mac's Inn Playhouse has returned to its roots and we cannot be more thrilled to have Drew and his entire group back! Two years ago, the ownership changed and it was a horrible experience. This summer, Mac's Inn Playhouse has returned to its great ways! The dinner was amazing! The actors are fabulous! The love of our country and families... More

Don't miss the Mack's Inn Dinner Theater! The food is excellent, the atmosphere so friendly and pleasant, and the "show" is full of laughs and fun. This is a great night out for the entire family...you cannot go wrong with this!

We were staying in the area and found out about the performance. It was reasonably priced and sounded entertaining. It exceeded everyone's expectations! The food was plentiful and tasty (we had the prime rib and loved it and our friends had the chicken and raved about it as well). When the show began we were amazed at the talent of... More

We had a fabulous time the dinner was great and the show was awesome . I definitely want to come back and see more shows. I loved pirates of the Caribbean. Dinner included prime rib, salad, beans, corn, baked potatoes and corn and an ice cream sandwich.

Was pleasantly surprised with the evening of fun that we enjoyed here in August 2014. The food was served buffet style and was satisfactory. No beer or wine available for purchase but they did advise us at time we made reservations that we could bring our alcohol. The fun began then after dinner. We attended a show entitled Klondike Kalamity... More

This was the 2nd trip to the playhouse for us. We saw "Les Mis" it was so funny and good. Actors did a great job. The warm up show was hilarious, enjoyed it very much! Dinner was great, and cinnamon rolls (As big as your head) to die for. We had a great time, will definitely do this again soon.

We went to the playhouse to see one of 3 plays they offered. It was a musical entitled "Lucky Stiff". It was your typical summer play with mostly students but was done well. Creative in costuming and scenery. The cast was creative when scenery faltered. The dinner was delicious. Prime rib, baked potatoes, corn, baked beans. It was served buffet... More

Worth our money for an evening of dinner and entertainment! The new owners have listened to their guests and made great improvements since last year. We attended Klondike Kalamity, a melodrama, this year and were quite pleased with the show. The actors/actresses were hilarious. Crowd interaction and ad-lib were reminiscent of years past and truly made the show. Young children... More
