The Okoboji Summer Theatre does a fantastic job of putting on productions. It has a nice level of class to it with wine tastings on Saturday evenings. They do a good job labeling plays for the intended audience. I would say that on rainy evenings, it is a bit difficult to hear unless you are close to the stage as... More

All summer, Lake Okoboji is graced with a fabulous entertainment. The tickets are reasonable and the shows are terrific. Musicals, comedies, and mysteries grace the stage.

Stephens College has been doing this for many years. They continue to bring good plays and actors every year. If you want tickets to musicals, you better order them early. Other than that, there always seems to be good seats available. A great group of people to work with.

We saw two plays this summer at OST. Cinderella and Sound of Music. They were superb performances. Next year will be the anniversary of their 60th year. Wonderful theatre performances all summer.

We wanted to see this because we are planning a trip to Austria and Switzerland. We are planning to see many of the sites used in the first movie. We... More

Not really a bad seat in the house. We saw a two hour show with a 10 minute intermission. They stuck very close to the times listed. We were shown to our seats, which are inside a theater - not outside. We saw "Here Comes the Bride". It was very funny and well done. I couldn't believe we were there... More

We love going every week to the Plays. Something different for everyone. The actors are very friendly and remember regulars. The new updates are wonderful. If your looking for something to do while in Okoboji they have several shows a week.

From musical to farce, from drama to children's theatre, the students and professionals at Okoboji Summmer Theater never disappoint. This amazing hybrid program gives students the opportunity to work with professionals in a true summer stock setting.
