Just had a "mommy & me" day with my oldest son who took me to see Shrek at the Fort Peck Theater as a belated Mother's day gift. Shrek was good, don't get me wrong, but there was something off-putting about his mask and we had a hard time understanding everything he said/sang. Fiona - in all 3 stages of... More

We truly enjoyed the Music Man this past weekend. Highly recommend it to all ages. If a child has the attention span to sit for 2 hours they would enjoy a front row seat. Love to see the expressions on the actors and actresses faces. Plan an over night stay, hotel and plenty of camping.

Every year the theatre puts on amazing shows with unbelievable talent! The rustic look of the theatre is beautiful! The seats are small and wooden without padding, so bring your own cushion if possible or rent one for $0.25. There are usually 5 shows throughout the summer, with shows on Friday and Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons. A must see!

The theater is fantastic and a great way to spend an evening with great family entertainment. Get a cushion at the front door, the seats are a bit hard. The consession stand has a great menu of treats (cheap) sold by community members, stop out at intermission for some icecream! We went to Footloose and had a great time.

The theater always brings a good show and a great evening. It's amazing we have this little jewel hidden in the community, and we often run into people from around the country who are camping here and learn about the theater. The shows are great, they use local talent as well as hired actors (some well known former TV or... More

The Theatre is a historic building, built in 1934 and is beautifully kept up. The live theatre presented on weekends in the summer is a fun blend of professional actors and local talent. I have attended several plays each summer and have enjoyed all.

Great talent and a nice relaxed atmosphere. It's great for families and couples. The seats are old and not very comfortable, so bring a cushion if you have one. You can rent one for 25cents, but they aren't really thick enough. A fun outing!
