BIG SKY – Montana Shakespeare in the Parks will perform “The Taming of the Shrew” at 6 p.m. in Big Sky’s Town Center Park on Sunday, Aug. 2.

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, who tour without technical assistance, to bring live theater to communities primarily in rural areas.

In its 43rd season, the company has added two days to the tour and performances in Spokane, Wash. and Sandpoint, Idaho, to make it the largest tour in its history. This summer, 47 percent of the communities reached by the troupe have populations of 2,000 or fewer.

Montana Shakespeare in the Parks opened its first season in the summer of 1973. Since that time, the company has performed over 2,250 times to nearly 750,000 people.

Audience members are encouraged to show up prior to the 6 p.m. curtain time with chairs, blankets, a picnic supper, and friends and family to enjoy the evening.

The Arts Council of Big Sky and the Big Sky Resort Tax District is presenting this free performance. Visit bigskyarts.org to learn more.
