Shakespeare In The Schools

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! 


Shakespeare in the Schools only charges schools 25% of the actual cost of keeping the program on the road. The remaining 75% is made up through a combination of grants and individual donations. School administrations most often cover the fee, but oftentimes parent-teacher organizations or community groups help to pay for part or all of the program. If there is a school in your community that you feel would benefit from the Shakespeare in the Schools program, please contact:

Kimberly Helms, General Manager kimberly.helms@montana.edufor more information.
