Montana Shakespeare in the Parks-Hamlet
- Hamlet: Almost universally hailed as the greatest play ever written in the English language, Shakespeare’s action packed tragedy begins with a restless ghost, a dispossessed prince and a hasty royal wedding. Hamlet, the prince who has come home to a ghost father and a re-married mother, struggles to enact his revenge-going a bit mad in the process. Much mayhem and rich language ensues while Hamlet contemplates his place in the universe, his deep love for his doomed mistress Ophelia, and his duty to revenge his murdered King. Packed with some of Shakespeare’s most famous lines, this play is the thing to see this 40th anniversary summer!
Montana Shakespeare in the Parks-Twelfth Night
- 12th Night: Shakespeare’s delightful comedy of wild infatuation and mistaken identities. Shipwrecked on the rocky coast of Illyria, the beautiful and daring Viola disguises herself as a man to protect her honor in this strange land, and finds employment as a page in the court of the lovesick Duke Orsino. But just as Viola falls in love with her new boss, the beautiful Olivia - whom Orsino is pursuing - finds herself attracted to this new young man, who's really Viola in disguise. Meanwhile, the servant Maria and the drunken Sir Toby Belch conspire to enact a riotous revenge on the hilariously pompus servant Malvolio. Filled with Shakespeare's most memorable comedic characters, sweet romantic longings and side-splitting situations, our 40th summer season sets sail for terrific fun with this magical comedy!
