Shakespeare In The Parks Announces Schedule

Montana Shakespeare in the Parks will travel to 65 communities in five states this summer to perform two classic Shakespeare plays.

For its 52nd season, the traveling theatre group, which is an outreach program of Montana State University’s College of Arts and Architecture, announced the playbill will feature Hamlet and The Winter’s Tale.

Hamlet will be presented in Wolf Point starting at 6:30

p.m. on July 2.

The Winter’s Tale will be presented on July 1 in Sidney and July 3 in Malta.

Hamlet, one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays, tells the story of the young prince of Denmark who returns home after his father’s murder and must grapple with the weight of his responsibility to avenge that death, to outmaneuver his scheming uncle and “to be or not to be.”

A bit lighter, with more comedy and an abundance of magic, The Winter’s Tale spans 16 years during which a jealous king accuses his wife of infidelity and exiles his daughter to Bohemia, where she is raised by shepherds and falls in love with the Bohemian king’s son.
