Montana Shakespeare in the Parks recently announced it will return to in-person performances for its 2021 season. Due to the pandemic, the Montana State University program postponed its 2020 season and created content for all ages under the title “MSIP Live.”

This summer, the company will perform William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and “Cymbeline.”

This year, the company plans to travel almost 7,000 miles putting on productions of the famed English playwright’s works 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.

The following local performances have been scheduled:

  • Aug. 16, Seeley Lake, “Cymbeline,” 6 p.m., Double Arrow Resort
  • Aug. 18, Kalispell, “Midsummer,” 6 p.m., Woodland Park
  • Aug. 19, Eureka, “Cymbeline,” 6 p.m., Historical Village
  • Aug. 20, Trout Creek, “Midsummer,” 6 p.m., Trout Creek Park
  • Aug. 24, Libby, “Midsummer,” 6 p.m., Libby Elementary School Amphitheater
