The Post Playhouse is located at Fort Robinson State Park. It's a live theater company, featuring professional actors from across the country. The Post Playhouse features several musicals running in a repertory-style schedule.

The shows that the Post Playhouse will be featuring this summer are "Shrek", "Mamma Mia!", "Crazy for You", "Chicago", and "Young Frankenstein". It's an ambitious schedule, and it's all a part of the effort to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the playhouse.

Taryn Vanderford recently talked to artistic director Dewayne Barrett about the season. "Most of the draw here is not only the beauty of Nebraska, and Fort Robinson State Park, the hiking, camping and canoeing, but there's a professional theater here. These are actors from all over the country," Dewayne said. "This is summer stock. Because summer stock you work hard, you learn all these shows, they are in repertory, so when the shows open, we open one every Friday night, and once the shows are open, we do them in rep. That way, all of the guests coming to the park can see very show in a week," Dewayne said.
