The Young Americans Dinner Theatre has been entertaining audiences at Boyne Highlands for more than four decades.

The players, who are students at The Young Americans College of the Performing Arts in California, hail from cities across the globe. Attendees look forward to performances covering a variety of music from opera to country, rap, hip hop and choral works. Each season offers a freshly curated show, so if you’ve attended this Northern Michigan event in the past, expect something new.

Director Bill Brawley has been with the theatre since its inception 44 years ago. “When Bill talks about the theatre, he always says there is a special magic our patrons feel from the ambiance of Boyne Highlands and the heartfelt performance from our 30 Young Americans. This feeling is the reason guests come back year after year,” says Suzie Johnson, The Young Americans Director and Producer of Michigan Projects.

Boyne Highlands elevates the concept of dinner and a show, pairing the Broadway-style performances with refined cuisine. Patrons enjoy oven roasted prime rib or sautéed Boursin chicken breast, while The Young Americans bring the stage to life.
