Are you in the mood for dinner and a show? Visit the historic Jackson Hole Playhouse, Wyoming’s longest running professional dinner theater! This iconic venue was originally built as a livery stable in 1915 and has been transformed many times over the years, from a Model T Ford dealership to a bowling alley. It wasn’t until 1948 that the theater was converted into what it is today – an area landmark that brings people together through art, food, and laughter. Here are some of the things you’ll see there.
