Montana Shakespeare Uncovered
MontanaPBS was lucky enough to tag along with Montana Shakespeare in the Parks in the summer of 2018 to document a day in the life of this travelling Shakespeare troupe. From waking up in one city through building and tearing down the stage in another, this troupe defies energy each and every day as they bring the Bard to communities in four states. We documented a day that started in Liberty Lake, WA, and ended in the smoke and haze of forest fire besieged Sandpoint, ID, but the show did indeed go on. Take a look at the process, the actors and the community that makes Montana Shakespeare in the Parks so unique.
