We have good friends that retired to NW Montana (Polson) and soon began going to the Bigfork Playhouse the very next summer. Whenever we visit them in the summer, one of the activities on the "agenda" has always been to take in a performance there. Thus, we have seen four shows in the past nine years.
The most recent performance (The Full Monty) we attended was on a sold out Thursday evening. The cast was young (college students and/or relatively recent graduates), enthusiastic (energy to spare), and talented. It was well choreographed. The musicians (only five) put out some mighty fine music.
The theater is relatively small (400 seats) in just 13 rows. I'm positive that you can see fine from anywhere. We sat in the front row and could therefore hear perfectly well. I'll assume that the same can be said of the seats further back.
Our retired friends? They attend every show every season at least once. If someone visits during the season, they go again.
Out in the middle of nowhere? For most of us, yes. But, if you live in this beautiful area of Montana or vacation there (Glacier National Park is only 45 miles away), Bigfork is in you backyard and deserves a visit at least once each season.
