Two Gentlemen of Verona

Shakespeare in the Park, St. Ignatius Montana, August 2009


The St. Ignatius Amphitheater is a very nice spot. The traffic noise was a bit much though-it was a little hard to hear.  They said they’ve lost their major corporate sponsor but that an anonymous donor paid for them to come to St. Ignatius still.  I have to thank whoever it was and everyone who contributes — our children out here wouldn’t have the opportunity to be exposed to this type of art were it not for the sponsors. So — THANK YOU!

You can see we had a nice place to sit in the shade at the top and back. I was surprised there were not many people! What a shame! The actors still did a great job.

Montana Shakespeare in the Parks has been touring Montana, northern Wyoming and eastern Idaho since 1973, with performances of free, professional outdoor theatre. An outreach program of Montana State University, it is the only completely professional touring theatre program in the state that produces Shakespeare’s plays, the only Shakespeare company in the country to reach as extensively into rural areas, and the only company in the state that offers its performances free to the public.
In order to maintain free performances that are high quality and available to all, funds are raised throughout the year through a combination of foundation grants, corporate sponsorships, individual donations and the exclusive Shakespeare in the Parks’ fundraiser-The Toast of the Town.


The set is beautiful.

This is my little monkey in the purple tie dye climbing on the rail. That’s why we sat at the back, and that’s why having this “in the park” is so nice, for children who may find it difficult to be able to sit still for the entire play.2009-082509 016sm
