When the spring elementary outreach tour, Montana Shakes!, had to be cancelled on March 15, our staff and actors got together to imagine new ways to serve our student audiences at a safe distance.
And Virtual Shakes, the education arm of MSIP was created.
Because our actors are safely quarantined together,they were able to film their play Faithful Friends. The play is being distributed to schools across the region and nation.
They have also placed workshop material on the FlipGrid platform.
Through May 1, they are hosting live talk backs with students that were to have received the tour, but couldn't due to school closures.
