Shakespeare in the Parks: The Winter’s Tale

August 2 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

Shakespeare in the Parks to Perform “The Winter’s Tale” at Montana Western

Montana Shakespeare in the Parks will hold a free performance of Shakespeare’s “The Winter’s Tale” on Friday, August 2, at 6:00 p.m. at the University of Montana Western Pioneer Federal Amphitheater on Legacy Plaza. Just bring your lawn chair, blanket, and a picnic dinner, and enjoy an evening of Shakespeare!

“A Winter’s Tale” is a play that blends tragedy and comedy, centered around themes of jealousy, redemption, and the passage of time. This play spans sixteen years, during which a jealous king accuses his wife of infidelity and exiles his newborn daughter to Bohemia, where she is raised by shepherds and ultimately falls in love with the Bohemian king’s son. Audiences are sure to relish this story of love, loss, and forgiveness.

Montana Western’s School of Outreach has brought Montana Shakespeare in the Parks to the Dillon community since 1986 and is a local sponsor of the event. We would like to thank our premier local sponsor, Pioneer Federal Savings & Loan, and our additional local sponsors: McIsaac Appraisal and the UMW Foundation.
