Grayson Heyl

Grayson could not be more honored to be a part of “Bard in the Backcountry.” She would like to thank Joel and Bill for taking a chance on her as a fresh graduate from Oklahoma City University two summers ago, and the amazing people of Montana for making that summer such an incredible experience. Grayson now resides in Chicago where she continues to perform.



Kody Walker

Kody Walker considers the summer he spend in Montana one that forever changed his life. Up until that particular summer he hadn’t grasped the importance of his career and the power of theater. His experience with Montana Shakespeare in the Parks taught him that everyone, no matter where they happen to live, should have access to amazing, beautiful, live theater. Thank you Montana for the best summer of my life. I love and miss you



Casey Hoekstra

Casey is a Minnesota native who fell in love with MSIP on his first summer tour, so he came back to play Romeo in Romeo and Juliet and Oliver in As You Like it. During the fall he toured schools as Proteus in Two Gentleman of Verona and hopes to join the company many times in the future!

Jonathan Altman

“I am a Georgia boy who lives in Chicago but who now has a Montana heart. My love for Shakespeare took me out to Big Sky country for a summer, but it was the beauty of its land and its people that keeps all the wonderful memories racing through my mind.”



Miriam Reuter

Sean Driscoll

Sean lives and works in the Chicago area where he continues to pursue his acting career. The summer Sean came to Montana to play Henry V was the first time he had been to Montana.
