The Young Americans Dinner Theatre is back and better than ever.

The Young Americans are excited to get back on the Boyne Highlands stage and entertain once again for the Summer 2021 season. This summer we're introducing new matinee show options, which gives our guests the flexibility to see the Young Americans perform without having to attend a dinner inclusive performance. 

Summer 2021 Show Information

  • There will be some changes this year to stay within the Michigan Department of Health guidelines, and we want our guests to be prepared in advance. Changes to the dining experience this season include:

    • If your party is less than 6 individuals, you may have to sit with another party
    • Guests can purchase tickets for an entire table to ensure their party will be seated separately from another party
  • Shows will be held beginning Friday, June 25 through Saturday, August 28. This year, the Young Americans will have Mondays off instead of Sundays. 

    Dinner Theatre Shows:

    • Tuesday through Saturday
    • Guests may arrive beginning at 5:45pm; dinner & the show will begin at 6:45pm

    Matinee Shows:

    • Saturday and Sunday
    • Guests may arrive beginning at 1pm; the show will begin at 1:45pm
  • It is recommended you purchase your tickets as soon as possible to guarantee your spot as we expect to sell out for the season quickly. No tickets will be held without payment - all tickets need to be purchased in full.

    It is preferred that you purchase your tickets online if possible. If you have any issues purchasing your tickets online, please contact the Box Office at 231.526.3152, which will be open for phone calls beginning May 10.

    Purchase Tickets

  • For the first time since the Young Americans Dinner Theatre began in 1978, we are introducing matinee show options. Matinee show options are available on Saturday and Sundays afternoons.

    • Saturday will still have the dinner option, but the matinee will be added as a second option. 
    • Sundays will only have the matinee option. 
  • As with many ticketed events, the 2021 Young American pricing structure will utilize a variable model based on guest demand.  Our matinee option will offer the best value, eliminating the dinner component.  With the full show experience, pricing will fluctuate based on guest demand. Due to the limited demand, we encourage you to purchase your tickets well in advance as tickets will go quickly!   

    IMPORTANT PRICING NOTE:  Taxes and gratuity will be automatically included in the ticket price this season. As always, the Young Americans cast greatly appreciates any and all additional gratuities after the show, if you desire.

Watch as charismatic young singers, dancers, and actors dazzle on stage while you savor the satisfaction of the evening - and create the kind of memories that set Boyne Highlands apart.
