MT Shakespeare in the Parks returns for summer 2021

“After enduring a year of uncertainty, we are so thrilled to be looking toward our 2021 season where we’ll be able to once again engage our amazing communities with live, free professional theatre. Our greatest passion at MSIP is the opportunity that we’ve had for 49 years to bring families and neighbors together to share a picnic and enjoy the splendor of Shakespeare’s world, a world that is so relevant to our own," Kevin Asselin, Executive Artistic Director, said.

Touring for its 49th year, the MSIP company will travel nearly 7,000 miles putting on productions throughout Montana and neighboring states. All performances are offered free to audiences in local parks and public spaces. MSIP relies on grants, corporate sponsorships and thousands of individual donors to support the free performances.

"Without question, absence makes the heart grow fonder, and MSU's College of Arts & Architecture is proud that our very own Montana Shakespeare in the Parks will be back on the road this summer. We'll be working closely with the communities around our region to deliver free Shakespeare performances with an eye to all our audiences' health and well-being. We look forward to warmly welcoming audiences to another spectacular season in the coming months," College of Arts & Architecture Dean Dr. Royce W. Smith said.
