“After Mt. Rushmore...the best attraction in the Black Hills.”
Reviewed September 9, 2011

I've been to theater in London, New York City and other cities and I am always amazed by the high caliber of theater at the Black Hills Playhouse. I have seen dozens of productions over 35 years of attendance...it is my favorite place to see a play.

“A wonderful addition to a trip to the Black Hills”
Reviewed September 7, 2011

We took our kids (2 ten year old boys) to "Lend Me a Tenor" this summer. It was very well staged and the theater is comfortable and well designed, with good seats throughout. I highly recommend an evening at the Playhouse as part of a family camping adventure.
Their prices are quite reasonable for live theater , but they also have family bargain nights weekly with even better prices. Furthermore, we were able to buy a 'pack' of 4 tickets and use them all the same night for a really good deal.

“Amazing talent in a beautiful Black Hills setting”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat was an excellent production at the playhouse. We also went to see Lend Me a Tenor earlier in the season. The entire staff made the experience enjoyable from the parking attendants to the manager and director. Wonderful summer theater!
