The Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival is a variety of live performances set on a stage that is nestled in the rocks of Sand Harbor State Park on Lake Tahoe.  This is an enchanting setting that could never be duplicated. Feel the fresh Tahoe air all around, sit back with a picnic and some friends while watching the sunset fade to dark while watching a world class production.

This year’s performances are The Comedy of Errors – Shakespeare’s Double Dose of Laughter and Forever Plaid – A Pitch-Perfect jukebox musical.  Other options include Cinderella, the ballet  and various orchestra, dance and singing performances.  Each night will be one to remember.

Arrive early, the gates open at 5:30 and the show does not start until 7:30pm.  Dinner is served at Shakespeare’s Kitchen with choices that include tri-tip & asparagus salad, mahi mahi tacos, smoked kielbasa sausage and more. Drinks are also served at the Stage Side Bar for a pre-show cocktail while you mingle with friends, gaze at the views and the setting for the night ahead.

There is something for kids as well through the Young Shakespeare Program featuring a one-hour adaptation of the main stage production, Comedy of Errors.  It is a free program and is offered on various days at various venues with most performances held on the same beautiful stage setting at Sand Harbor.

The Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival has been enjoyed by many since 1972 when it began at Sugar Pine Point State Park on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe.  Join in this summer and see what all the talk is about.  You will not be disappointed.
