Shakespeare in the Parks

Currently, there are still many details that they are working to iron out regarding our safety protocols while staying in alignment with Montana State University, the Gallatin Valley Health Commission and our friends at Bozeman Deaconess. We are in constant communication with our health constituencies and daily work on fine tuning our safety measures for this upcoming season. Please visit www.shakespeareintheparks.org for any and all updated information.
