Since 1973, Montana Shakespeare in the Parks (MSIP) has been bringing free performances of Shakespeare and other classics to communities and schools throughout the Rocky Mountain West. We rely on the generosity of sponsors to offset production costs and ensure MSIP is able to continue offering performances to audiences free of charge. In return, sponsors gain exposure to a widespread and dedicated audience, with recognition options including printed advertising in our summer program (est. reach: 30,000), logo placement on performance posters and tour trailer, live acknowledgements, and much more. 

We are proud to have sponsorship opportunities available for businesses of any size, and our sponsorship packages may be customized to meet your business’ needs. We invite you to partner with us in bringing this longstanding tradition to audiences throughout Montana and surrounding states by becoming an MSIP Sponsor.
