“Now in our 50th year, we couldn’t be happier to announce our energy-packed winter show production that speaks to the spiritedness of Shakespeare and to the passion we have for our 2022 season.” – Kevin Asselin, Executive Artistic Director

The winter show will tour to 29 communities and will end with Black Box performances in Bozeman.

MSIP is pleased to announce our 50th Anniversary Tour– The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) [Revised].  

From plays to sonnets, this high-octane performance shares Shakespeare’s best. Audiences will delight in this fast-firing comedy that attempts to prove that three actors can do the impossible: act through Shakespeare’s entire canon – 37 plays – in 90 minutes!?  

As a way to give back to the communities that have made these last 50 years possible, we are thrilled to offer this shoulder season tour as way to say thank you! Thank you for making us such a valuable part of your communities, and for continuing to keep our mission alive and well. The Complete Works Tour is a toast to your generosity, support, and commitment to providing access to the cultural arts for the last 50 years across Montana and beyond.

As our whirlwind tour concludes, we will return to Bozeman for a limited run as part of our annual Black Box Series.
