WHO THE HECK ARE YOU???
Drew and Julie Durrant owned and operated Mack’s Inn Playhouse from May 2008 until September 2012. With the Durrants’ at the helm, Mack’s Inn Playhouse became a destination for family friendly musical spoofs for the Greater Yellowstone Area. They would perform 70 shows each summer and squeeze them all in between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
In the summer of 2012, long time friends and patrons, Rob and Sherri Dias, approached the Durrants’ about working with the students at Diamond Ranch Academy and opening a new dinner theater in Southern Utah. Rattlin’ D Playhouse was born. Now all they needed was a stage. November 2013, the playhouse found a temporary home in the Hurricane Community Center. In March 2014, the Playhouse moved into it’s permanent home located on the beautiful campus of Diamond Ranch Academy. The Playhouse is unique in that ALL of the profits are placed in a “Young Performing Artist” scholarship fund for current and former students at Diamond Ranch Academy.
In 2015, Mack’s Inn Playhouse once again became available and the temptation to return was too great and so with a little good ole fashioned fandanglin’, the Rattlin’ D Players once again began performing in Island Park in the summer of 2015.
The Rattlin’ D Playhouse now has two great locations; the winter time home in Hurricane, Utah and the summer place in Island Park, Idaho.
“We look forward to entertaining you!”
