“Great Music”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

The Fabulous Fifties show we attended on June 14, 2013 was truly one of the best I've seen. The singers were enthusiastic, very talented and the show was engaging. A young couple are the owners and managers and Bill Minihan is the lead actor/singer with a Jim Carrey mobile expression. Highly recommend this as worth every penny of the admission price.

“Great Family Entertainment!”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We've been to Grand Rivers many, many times but we finally took time to visit the Badgett Playhouse for a performance and were pleasantly surprised. The play we saw, Smoke on the Mountain: Homecoming was excellent! I don't know if the actors and actresses are from the area or not, but they put on an excellent performance. We are considering getting patron tickets because we live close enough that we will probably go back to see a different play. They have 22 different plays listed for the 2013 season and all are performed multiple times. If you look them up on the internet, you will find a schedule of their performances.

“As good as Branson”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

My wife and I are Patron Pass holders for the last two years and have enjoyed every show we have seen. Great seating,reasonable prices even for non pass holders.I would recommend anyone in the Grand Rivers area to attend any one of the shows. They are all great.Whenever we have friends or family in town this is where we bring them for great entertainment. Always Patsy Cline is a must see for all. We have seen all but a couple shows on the schedule and always leave impressed with the talent.
