Montana Shakespeare in the Parks Brings "Hamlet" to FVCC

BOZEMAN — Montana Shakespeare in the Parks (MSIP) will bring its production of “Hamlet” to Flathead Valley Community College August 21.  One of the summer’s most anticipated attractions, 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.

This summer marks Montana Shakespeare in the Parks’ 40th season involving a 10-week tour of 76 performances in 59 communities.  The performance at FVCC will take place at 6 p.m. behind Blake Hall on the college’s Kalispell campus.  Admission is free, and tickets are not required for entry into the show.

Audiences are encouraged to show up prior to curtain time with chairs, blankets and a picnic supper.

Montana Shakespeare in the Parks is an outreach program of MSU’s College of Arts and Architecture. Performances this summer are supported by grants and corporate sponsorships as well as hundreds of individual donors who give what they can to keep the performances free and available to everyone in the touring area.

Major sponsors include the National Endowment for the Arts, Subaru of America, NorthWestern Energy, Stillwater Mining, Barrick Foundation, JTech Communications, Montana Cultural Trust and the Montana Arts Council.
