Montana Shakespeare in the Parks (MSIP) is returning and celebrating their 51 st Season and will perform Measure for Measure at the pavilion at Veterans Memorial Park in Sidney on Saturday, July 1 at 6:30 p.m. Best of all, the MonDak Heritage Center and MSIP have partnered again to bring this professional performance to the public for FREE! It promises to be a lovely evening in the park, perfect for adults, children, families, and friends. This is a perfect addition to the July 4th Weekend.
All performances are FREE and open to the public. Seating is first come, first served. This is the company’s first time performing Measure for Measure since the year 2000. Categorized by scholars as one of Shakespeare’s “problem plays,” neither neat comedy nor tragedy, audiences will be captivated by the way this play explores themes of power, class dynamics, and justice through a modern and inclusive lens.
Founded on the firm belief that Shakespeare belongs to everyone, Montana Shakespeare in the Parks has been enriching the lives of people in Montana for 51 years! Born from aspirations to bring the timeless tales of William Shakespeare directly to rural and under-served communities, the professional MSIP performers usher Shakespeare’s immortal stories of life, love, and tragedy into a modern era. Audiences will discover the magic of Shakespeare through a progressive and inclusive lens, where universal truths of mankind are united through stories that stretch beyond space and time.
On July 1st , experience Montana Shakespeare in the Parks under the welcoming blue skies of the West and relish in world-class performances that are free and friendly to all, and, for all time. MSIP operates out of Montana State University’s College of Art and Architecture and relies on grants, private donations, partners like the MonDak Heritage Center, and residents of tour communities. This summer, the company will perform in 63 communities across 5 states including Montana, Idaho, North Dakota, Washington, and Wyoming, making this summer MSIP’s largest tour to date. Ushering Shakespeare’s immortal stories of life, love, and tragedy into a modern era, MSIP is dedicated to preserving the cultural traditions of theatre and literature through live, free performances every summer across the Rocky Mountain West.
