Jul 3, 2020 - Aug 23, 2020

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.

Two extraordinary productions offered in the 2020 season!

Back by popular demand, there will be two productions featuring gorgeous costumes, stunning sets and one of the most talented professional acting companies in the West! For ticket information and to purchase online, click here.

  • MAMMA MIA – On a tiny Greek island, Sophie is making final preparations for her wedding day in paradise. Little does her mother Donna know that Sophie’s last minute preparations include sleuthing out who her father may be among three possible candidates that she’s secretly invited. The story-telling magic of pop-hit songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter, family and friendship…which concludes with a trip down the aisle that you’ll never forget!
  • Much Ado About Nothing – Beatrice and Benedick would rather exchange scorching insults than sweet nothings. However, the pugnacious pair is forced to forge a partnership in order to defend house and honor, and salvage the true love of Hero and Claudio after deceptions destroy the lovers’ wedding day. Will the earnest endeavor to restore a young romance elicit an unexpected change of heart for the effort’s unlikely collaborators as well?

A multi-event Showcase Series augments the festival’s main-stage productions and includes a diverse array of live music and entertainment from a variety of genres.
