You Never Can Tell

 

A brand-new dentist, an independent woman, a pair of twins, a search for a missing father, and a helpful waiter all add up to hilarity in this Shavian farce. Director William Brown, the Chicago Tribune’s 2003 Person of the Year for Theatre directs.

You Never Can Tell is an 1897 four-act play by George Bernard Shaw that debuted at the Royalty Theatre. It was published as part of a volume of Shaw's plays entitled Plays Pleasant. In June 2011, the play was revived at the Coliseum Theatre in Aberystwyth, Wales, where it had been performed exactly one century earlier.

The mission of Montana Shakespeare in the Parks is to make quality, live theatrical productions of Shakespeare and other classics accessible to communities in Montana and surrounding states with an emphasis on underserved, rural areas who would not otherwise have this opportunityAll performances are offered free, making Shakespeare in the Parks available to everyone. The company's oldest educational program, Shakespeare in the Schools, complements the education of young people by providing a complete production of one of Shakespeare's plays along with workshops that enhance their understanding and appreciation of Shakespeare's works. In 2008, the Company introduced MONTANA SHAKES!, a program designed specifically for elementary schools which provides an entertaining and interactive introduction to Shakespeare at a time when students are most receptive to learning. All three are professionally produced theatrical outreach programs of Montana State University's College of Arts and Architecture.

The Montana Shakespear In the Park  will be presented in Townsend on July 30, 2017 at 6:00 at Heritage Park.

The performance is free but donations are welcome!!
