On September 2nd we decided to drive up to to Big Sky to watch “A Comedy of Errors” performed by Montana Shakespeare in the Parks.  It was Flora’s birthday, and we wanted to do something unique that she would remember.  We brought Brodie as well, who as you know is a very cultured dog.

Happy Birthday, Flora!

Dougy and Doug had actually already seen this play performed in Bozeman back in June, but the two plays the company performed over the summer were “A Comedy of Errors” and “Richard III,” and we thought it would be much more enjoyable to go see the comedy (Richard III was actually playing in Bozeman later in the weekend).

We all noted how easy it was to attend the venue (compared to the crowds, traffic, and parking problems you would encounter for a similar free outdoor venue in Atlanta).

Two of the twins are tied up in the chair. They did a great job!

Here is a link to the website about Shakespeare in the Parks.  They were celebrating their 44th season this year, which makes them one of the oldest Shakespeare festivals in the nation.

This is about 30 minutes before the show started.

The actors did a great job making the play easy to follow, even though at times we had no idea what they were saying.  There was lots of silliness and even a little crowd interaction, and they “modernized” the story with a little bit of music.  I would definitely check out the schedule next summer and try to go see another one.

We had healthy lettuce wraps for dinner…no bread for you!

It’s common knowledge that border collies love outdoor theater.
