Join us we end our summer outdoor season with the annual FREE performance from Montana Shakespeare in the Parks at 5:30 on Center Stage in Town Center Park! This year’s play will be Macbeth, and it is sponsored by the Resort Tax District of Big Sky.

As one of the summer’s most anticipated events in the region, Montana Shakespeare in the Parks brings professional productions, at no cost to the public, to communities throughout Montana, northern Wyoming, eastern Idaho, western North Dakota and eastern Washington. Remarkably self-reliant, the company features 10 professional actors selected by national audition who tour without technical assistance to bring live theatre to communities primarily in rural areas.

Montana Shakespeare in the Parks (MSIP) opened its first season in the summer of 1973. Since that time, MSIP has performed over 2,250 times to nearly three quarter of a million people becoming a mainstay of Montana culture. The company’s contribution to the cultural fabric of Montana and its unique ability to serve the most remote rural areas of the region has been chronicled by Montana PBS, NBC Nightly News, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and many others. In 1991, the company was named the recipient of the Montana Governor’s Award for the Arts, the highest honor that can be bestowed on an arts organization in our state.

All performances of Montana Shakespeare in the Parks are free and tickets are not needed for admission. Audiences are encouraged to show up prior to the appointed curtain time with chairs, blankets, a picnic supper, and friends and family to enjoy the evening.
