Jackson Hole Playhouse

You can attend live theater from June through the end of September at the Jackson Hole Playhouse, the oldest building in town. The best seats are a hot commodity, but procrastinators can usually buy last-minute tickets. Eat dinner at 6:30 in the gaudy, Western-style saloon, and take in the show in the playhouse's theater at 8. Performances also take place from late November through New Year's Eve.

Off-Square Theatre

For those seeking a contemporary theater experience, Off-Square Theatre is a space for children and adults where theater professionals and nonprofessionals strut their stuff and sometimes go outside the box. It's one of the leading theater companies in the region.
