Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival
August 1 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:30 pm, repeating until August 22, 2021
Imagine your toes in the sand, a fantastic bottle of wine nearby, a gourmet meal and first-class entertainment with your friends and family, all while basking in a perfect Lake Tahoe sunset. You’re not dreaming, you’re experiencing the enchantment of the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival at Sand Harbor State Park. The amphitheater is one of the most scenic venues in the world.
The 2021 season brings you The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged). The show features three ambitious actors, clad in classic Converse tennis shoes and armed with an outrageous assortment of outerwear and props, cram the Bard’s entire canon of plays (and sonnets!) into two hours of sheer Elizabethan-esque ecstasy. Need we say more? Buckle your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride. This endearingly irreverent and lightning-paced romp through the greatest plays of all time will have you rolling with laughter and jumping in the aisles. Perhaps The Today Show captured its spirit best when they said, “If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show!”
