Montana Shakespeare is a collection of 3 programs: Montana Shakespeare in the Parks (all audiences), Montana Shakespeare in the Schools (Middle-High School), and Montana SHAKES! (Elementary-Middle School). During the school year, a professional acting company performs in about 50 schools throughout Montana. These productions feature an abridged production of a Shakespearean play, complete with ornate costumes and scenery, followed by a Q&A session between the actors and students and a full complement of workshops.
Acting workshops conducted by 2016 Montana Shakespeare in the Schools for middle and high school students to develop skills in improvisation, language, pantomime, stage combat, and critical analysis.
