Something super unique to our town is the old western playhouse on Deloney Avenue, The Jackson Hole Playhouse. It’s a gorgeous 1915 building, currently Jackson Hole’s oldest, and has so much history within its walls. It has gone through many phases including being the local post office in the 1930’s to becoming a theatre in the 1940’s. Every night in the summer (except Sundays), the hired Playhouse cast puts on a show that is not to be missed. Adamo and I had the chance to go to their dinner and a show and loved everything about it.
It’s actually quite impressive……starting at 6pm, the cast performs the longest standing shootout in the country right on Town Square. It’s fun, free, and so great for kids. I highly suggest adding this to your Things To Do in Jackson Hole one night as it’s a quick and funny show. Afterwards, the cast walks back through the streets towards the Playhouse in their old western costumes to get ready to start serving drinks and dinner.
We opted for the Dinner & Show but you can also just get tickets to the show if you’d rather. The food though, was soooo good! Everything is made with fresh ingredients and really fun dishes. Don’t worry, we tried all of the dishes for you and can say with confidence that we loved them all. Their cocktails were also really good and I feel like you can’t drink there without ordering a sarsaparilla float after dinner. The cast not only serves you dinner but they also put on a show throughout the meal with plenty of amazing singing in the historic dining room.
After dinner, grab popcorn and candy at the booth before finding your seats for the show in the intimate historic theatre. This summer the running show is Annie Get Your Gun, which was such a fun performance! Grab your tickets for a true old western experience at The Jackson Hole Playhouse. The summer season runs through September.
