A Brief History
Since its inception in 1997, the Montana Shakespeare Company (MSC) has grown dramatically.
Its inaugural production of, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” opened in the summer of 1997 at the Helena Quarry. With a cast composed of collegiate and community performers, the production was welcomed with outstanding enthusiasm and ran for two weekends.
The Quarry’s majestic walls and open Montana starry skies became the rustic, intimate theatre space for the company for the next two subsequent seasons of “The Tempest” and “Macbeth.”
Zoning restrictions necessitated a move for MSC and since that time the company has performed in eight different venues over the past 16 years. During that time, MSC has entertained thousands of guests, who delight in our classical, quality performances under starry summer skies.
Typically, the company is comprised of professional and aspiring actors from Montana and across the nation who perform the classics in repertory.
This summer, MSC returns to the centrally located and serene Great Northern Town Center.
