Bigfork Playhouse Children’s Theater presents ‘Night at the Wax Museum’

| January 25, 2023 12:00 AM

The Bigfork Playhouse Children’s Theater’s production of “Night at the Wax Museum” begins this Friday night.

The hysterical meets the historical in this comic romp through the wackiest wax museum in history. School’s out for summer, but not for six unlucky students who don’t know much about history — they have to retake the class in summer school. First year teacher Heather Fairchild has arranged for them to help her two aunts set up a new wax museum as a class project. Though the students’ eyes glaze over with boredom, there’s a twinkle in the wax figures’ eyes when a mysterious incantation from the back of Cleopatra’s bracelet brings them to life: King Henry VIII, Cleopatra, Anne Boleyn, Butch Cassidy, Calamity Jane, pirates and more. All have returned and are looking for something. Come see how the students survive their first-hand history lesson.

“Night at the Wax Museum” starts this week on Jan. 27 and 28 and continues next weekend on Feb. 3, 4 and 5. Shows begin at 7:30 p.m., with the exception of the Sunday matinee show that begins at 2 p.m. on Feb. 5.

Regular ticket prices are $14 for Adults, $12 for Seniors, $11 for Students and $10 for children under 10 and can be purchased online or at the Box Office one hour prior to performances.

This production is fun for the entire family. For more information, call 406-837-4886 or email or check their website at
