Long Description:
One of the high spots for summer entertainment is the Okoboji Summer Theater. Nine different productions offer choices from comedy, musicals, and farces, each a delight for those enjoying live entertainment.

Organized in 1953 by Kent Andrews of Grinnell College, the Okoboji Summer Theater began in an old vacant airplane hangar. In 1958 Stephens College signed a lease and began its history of entertaining area residents and summer tourists; in 1962 the buildings and land were turned over to the college. The Boji Bantam Theater was added in 1963. Over the years numerous cabins were built to house staff. The theater completed renovation in 2007.

2011 productions include:

STEEL MAGNOLIAS
WAIT UNTIL DARK
BEDROOM FARCE

THE SUNSHINE BOYS
SHOOTING STARS
THE LADIES MAN
