The Bigfork Theater is the best that you will find anywhere. Some plays are with local talent and some with true actors/actresses who star with the locals. Great fun for anyone and you can see perfectly from any seat in the house!

When I last attended the 6-String Theory competition via Crown of the Continent Guitar Workshop and Festival the sound seemed a little deadened. It was built for theater performances, not music so much, but it's comfortable seating, nicely built and decorated and I had a fun time with every visit.

I attended young Frankenstein with my mom and my husband. It was a great time! The show was hilarious and actors were very good. Highly recommend taking in a show here if you are visiting the flathead lake area.

Went to the season ending performance of Shrek. Ages in our group ranged from 8 to 44. Surprisingly some people had very young children there for a 2 hour musical that started at 8pm. Made for some noisy disruptions as kids became both tired and disinterested. Other than that, the evening could not have been better. Exceptionally entertaining. Some very... More

It's literally the very last place you would expect to see the level of talent this theatre consistently attracts. And yet--it does. We saw 42nd Street, and the production was first-rate! We were astonished. And we were told that some of the actors do go right to Broadway from that theatre program! So do yourself a favor and make sure... More

They are open Tuesday through Saturday evening and Sunday Matinees. A young amazingly talented cast, a top notch facility for performing arts. Comfortable seating, not a bad seat in the house. Great sound design. Shows... More

We saw 42nd Street. It was non stop enjoyment. The acting, singing and dancing were as good as it gets. The theater is lovely with not a bad seat in the house. We were really surprised at the quality in a small town like Big Fork. We booked a month ahead and got 3rd row seats. The show was a... More
