Montana Rep receives a $10,000 grant from The Shubert Foundation

We're pleased to have been honored by a generous grant from The Shubert Foundation, an internationally respected organization benefitting the arts.

The Shubert Foundation is dedicated to sustaining and advancing the live performing arts in the United States and provides general operating support to not-for-profit, professional resident theatre and dance companies. Grant recipients must have track records of artistic achievement, administrative strength, and fiscal responsibility.

Funds from the Shubert grant will be used to support Montana Rep's educational outreach program, our summer Missoula Colony, and our ongoing national tour, now in its 49th year.

Once Upon a Time
in Ancient Greece

A comedy by Laramie Dean

A fantastic and comic quest of mythological proportions!

Stheno, one of three sisters turned into hideous Gorgons by Athena for catching the eye of Poseidon, is not going to take her sister Medusa's murder lying down!

Told in under 50 minutes, this epic story is played out by three actors donning a variety of Greek masks and employing puppetry, shadow play, and illusion to create this highly inventive theatrical experience.
