Bozeman, Mont.— Montana Shakespeare in the Parks (MSIP) will bring its production of “The Taming of the Shrew” to Flathead Valley Community College August 26.

 

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. The company features 10 professional actors selected by national auditions who tour without technical assistance to bring live theatre to rural communities. In its 43rd season, MSIP has added two days to the tour and performances in Spokane, Wash., and Sandpoint, Idaho, making it the largest tour in MSIP history.

 

MSIP Artistic Director Kevin Asselin will direct this year’s production of “The Taming of the Shrew” with a regional Wild West take on the play. The performance at FVCC will be held at 6 p.m. in the FVCC Arboretum located behind Blake Hall on the college’s Kalispell campus. Admission is free, and tickets are not required for entry into the show. Show goers are encouraged to arrive prior to curtain time with chairs, blankets, a picnic supper, friends and family to enjoy the evening.

 

Montana Shakespeare in the Parks is an outreach program of Montana State University’s College of Arts and Architecture. Grants, corporate sponsorships and hundreds of individual donors support the free performances. The company is also supported by the National Endowment for the Arts: Art Works and other major sponsors, including Gilhousen Family Foundation, the Gianforte Family Foundation, Pheasant Farms, Subaru of America, Montana Arts Council, ADOUR Good Food and Catering, Barnard Construction, NorthWestern Energy, D.A. Davidson and Company, Elise Donohue, Double D Ranch, KBZK and the MSU Alumni Foundation.

 

In the event of inclement weather, the show will be held in the FVCC Black Box Theatre inside the Arts and Technology Building on campus.
