Montana Shakespeare in the Schools visits Worland High School

WORLAND — Montana Shakespeare in the Schools, based in Bozeman, Montana, visited Worland High School Thursday morning to perform “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies.
Following the performance, actors from the outreach program conducted workshops with students.
Montana Shakespeare in the Schools gave its first fall tour in 1993, according to its web site. In less than a decade the program has grown from a two-actor tour that performed scenes with very limited costumes and scenery to an eight-member professional company that performs a 75-minute production of a complete Shakespearean play complete with ornate costumes and scenery along with a Q&A session between the actors and students and a full complement of workshops following the performance.
This fall marks the 20th season for the outreach program.
Actors visiting Worland were Samuel Ashdown, Patrick Budde, Ty Fanning and Cassandra Quinn.
“We explore a variety of different Shakespeare topics,” said Quinn. “We do character building with the students and then allow them to re-enact a scene.”
Quinn graduated from Huntington University with a B.A. in theatre performance and sociology. She is the co-founder and teaching artist for Compass Creative Dramatics.
Ashdown holds a B.F.A. from Southern Oregon University and an M.F.A. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He has performed at the Utah Shakespeare Festival and Chicago Shakespeare Theater to name a few.
Budde is a Chichago-based actor/musician and proud graduate of Northwestern University. He recently finished an acting internship at the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre.
Fanning finished his BFA in acting from Oklahoma City University’s School of Theatre in December 2012. He now lives in Los Angeles, California.
The actors will be in Sheridan today performing.
