The traveling troupe of Montana Shakespeare in the Parks provided the laughs Tuesday August 19 in Hamilton.

The Shakespeare play "As You Like It" was performed at the large lawn of Sapphire Lutheran Homes. The actors were dressed in turn-of-the-century Butte mining clothes, but the words were mostly out of London's early days as mistaken identity and yearning for love drove the plot.

It was a happy ending for the characters and for the audience. Bravo!

You can still see "As You Like It" in Missoula next Tuesday, August 26 at the University of Montana Oval. "Romeo and Juliet" will be presented at the UM Oval Monday, August 25. They will be traveling to 16 other places, including Deer Lodge, Townsend, Laurel, Columbus, Whitehall, Livingston and Salmon, Idaho.

The final performance for the season will be in Bozeman September 7 at 1 p.m. at Montana State University.
