Since 1973…Free Every Summer!Montana Shakespeare in the Parks (MSIP) is the only fully professional touring theatre program in the state currently producing 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, guaranteeing accessibility to all. MSIP travels to 61 communities every summer with 75 performances throughout MT, northern Wyoming, eastern Idaho, western North Dakota and eastern Washington with an emphasis on underserved, rural areas. Over 45% of the communities served by MSIP have a population of less than 2,000 and nearly 85% have less than 10,000. Since 1973, the summer touring program has presented over 2,150 performances to nearly three-quarters of a million people. MSIP is a nationally recognized outreach program of the College of Arts and Architecture at Montana State University.
