Abstract: In 1998, Greg McShane demonstrated a remarkable identity for the lengths of simple closed geodesics on cusped hyperbolic surfaces. In 2006, we generalized this to hyperbolic cone-surfaces, possibly with cusps and/or geodesic boundary. In this paper, we generalize the identity further to the case of classical Schottky groups. As a consequence, we obtain some surprising new identities in the case of Fuchsian Schottky groups. For classical Schottky groups of rank 2, we also give generalizations of the Weierstrass identities, given by McShane in 2004.
