Our 30th Season!

For its 30th season, Shakespeare in the Schools (SIS) will present Macbeth, directed by Susan Felder, to middle and high school students in the way it was meant to be presented – in an engaging live performance. Accompanied by a lively post-show talk back and related and active workshops, SIS reaches 47 schools with 53 performances in Montana and Wyoming each fall with professional programming. The Fall 2022 schedule is booking up. Stay tuned for more information to see public performances! 


For its 30th season, Montana Shakespeare in the Schools presents : Macbeth. Directed by Susan Felder and targeted to enthrall middle school & high school kids,  this production will be offered to students in the way it was meant to be presented – in an engaging live performance. 

Macbeth is a brave soldier and a powerful man, but he is not a virtuous one. He is easily tempted into murder to fulfill his ambitions to the throne, and once he commits his first crime and is crowned King of Scotland, he embarks on further atrocities with increasing ease. Accompanied by a lively post-show talkbacks and workshops, all students are sure to enjoy one of Shakespeare’s first folio masterpieces.

If there is a school in your community that you feel would benefit from the Shakespeare in the Schools program, please contact:
