Billings Studio Theatre is a studio theatre and not-for-profit community theatre company located at 1500 Rimrock Road in Billings, Montana.

The first performance by the company was There's Always Juliet in 1953. In 1963, the company decided it needed a home and moved into a church in downtown Billings. Five years later, the church became condemned and effort to build a new home began. In 1971, Billings Studio Theatre opened its doors to a new theatre located in the western part of Billings.

Currently, the company produces several plays and musicals each year. There are both children's and adult productions and some more recent productions have included The Laramie Project, Oklahoma!, 12 Angry Men, and Wit.

In 2013, it became the first community theater company in Montana to stage a "full version of the musical "Les Misérables"."

About 500 people a year volunteer at the theater. The theater "showcases two Rocky Mountain College productions annually" and "operates a children's theatre, The Growing Stage."
