Starlight Mountain Theatre is one of Idaho’s best kept secrets. Tucked away in the beautiful scenery of Garden Valley, this little theater works all summer to put on amazing shows nearly every evening from May til August!

The Show

Starlight theatre does an incredible job involving their audience. One way they interact is by serving you a delicious dinner. The dinner is served by the actors who also perform for you during dinner. This gives an incredible opportunity to get to know the cast behind the mask. When you purchase it as a package you get a discount on both the show and the dinner. A Season pass is available for $107 and is good for 4 shows. A 10 show Punch Pass is offered for $227.
