The renowned Shakespeare in the Parks troupe will play in Hamilton Monday, August 17.

The 6 p.m. outdoor performance of "The Taming of the Shrew" will be at the Sapphire Lutheran Homes lawn on North 10th. The traveling show from Montana State University in Bozeman has made Hamilton part of its summer tour for quite a few years now.

Bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy the presentation of the Bard's comedy, set in a wild west time frame, with cowpokes, saloon girls and dudes all over the place.

Oh, I should mention that it's free! That's thanks to the Rapp Family Foundation, Ravalli county Bank, Farmers State Bank, Sapphire Lutheran Homes and Ravalli County Federal Credit Union.
