The School of Outreach Brings Montana Shakespeare in the Parks to Dillon

July 12, 2017

On July 24, 2017 at 6pm, the Montana Shakespeare in the Parks theatre company will perform “Macbeth” at Jaycee Park. The performance is free and available to people of all ages.

The Montana Shakespeare in the Parks performance will be a part of SMAC’s Dinner in the park series. Dinner at the performance will be provided by The Dillon Soroptimists.

MSIP’s Executive Artistic Director Kevin Asselin will direct a unique take on “Macbeth” set in a dystopian future where warring factions fight for resources, power, and control while losing themselves in the process.

Montana Shakespeare in the Parks has been bringing high quality live theatrical productions to small communities in Montana for 45 years.

Expanding from their first tour of 13 shows in 1973, the group will be performing 76 shows in 61 cities in 2017.

The University of Montana Western has worked with Montana Shakespeare in the Parks for roughly 40 years. Since 1986, the School of Outreach has consecutively helped bring Montana Shakespeare in the Parks to the Dillon community. The School of Outreach’s mission is to promote lifelong learning.

The University of Montana Western’s School of Outreach is sponsoring this event in partnership with the university’s Residence Life and Foundation offices, and The Southwest Montana Arts Council.
