Summer Theater The town of Leavenworth has become increasingly noteworthy for the excellence of live productions each season by the renowned Leavenworth Summer Theatre. Every summer for the last ten years, the highly popular Sound of Music has been presented in the spectacular ski-hill theatre outdoor site. At the Hatchery Park Amphitheatre, two other classic productions are presented every summer, “live, outdoor, under the stars”. A fall performance is presented during November at the unique and lovely Sleeping Lady Chapel Theatre, and a classic Christmas performance takes place at the same site during December. There is nothing quite as wonderful as an evening of excellent live musical theatre on a warm summer evening under the stars. For tickets, visit Leavenworth Summer Theater.

Shopping For an authentic European experience, the quaint shops of the Bavarian Village provide one of the most unique shopping experiences you’ll ever find. The variety of local shops is nearly unmatched, ranging from bakeries and chocolate specialty shops, to fine art stores and glass sculpture galleries; from cheese specialists to toy-train enthusiasts, antique clock stores and hat shops . Enjoy the beautiful flower displays which adorn the streets in the spring and summertime or in the wintertime, the Christmas carolers that bring to life the street-corners as the snow lightly covers the town in a peaceful white blanket. The Bavarian Village truly offers a unique shopping experience you will find nowhere else.
