First time they tried this format, but was fun and participatory. We had a great time, as did the crowd.

We recently took advantage of a couple of "preview shows" at the Badgett Playhouse. We went to the GAME SHOW on Friday which is an audience participation experience where the audience competes as two teams. Participation is volunteer only and prizes ranged from popcorn to $10 gift cards to local places such as Miss Pattis Settlement. It was fun mostly... More

My wife and I have attended several of their shows over the years. Every single one of the shows are excellent. I have seen professional shows in Chicago, Branson, and Pigeon Forge, and the shows at Baggett Playhouse are just as good as any shows I've seen at those other venues. Wonderful atmosphere, very family friendly. It's a wonderful experience... More

I think older kids up to 100 plus would enjoy going to the playhouse. They play some of the best music. We've been there for Christmas shows, country shows, Decades shows and some others in the past few years. The entertainers really are good! We've always enjoyed the show. These entertainers are as good as the shows in Branson. Shows... More

Disappointed the place was closed on a Monday evening. Understandable as this area does not have many people. Make sure to call ahead for open time.

We have been to many shows & enjoyed all. We are lucky we only live a few miles away. Our out of town quests are always treated to a show, this is an easy decision for us knowing that they will enjoy.
