About The Montana Shakespeare Company

Twelfth Night

The Montana Shakespeare Company brings the words and world of the Bard to the Great Northern Amphitheater in downtown Helena! With a company of actors from across the nation, MSC is the Treasure State’s resident Shakespeare company, performing full-length productions of the Bard’s great works and other classics under starry summer skies in the Capital City.

Emphasizing the works of William Shakespeare, MSC presents dynamic and powerful productions which enrich, enlighten, and entertain audiences of all ages while contributing to the economic and cultural health of our community and state.

Founded in 1997 by its artistic director, the late Kim DeLong, the Montana Shakespeare Company is a 501©3 non-profit arts organization (incorporated under Artists Group, Inc).

“We like intimate Shakespeare, and the Great Northern Amphitheater gives us a venue to create that. It’s really wonderful to be in the center of that energy, and the community has been really supportive of us,” DeLong said.
