Jul 8, 2017 - Aug 27, 2017

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 2017 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.

  • Love’s Labour’s Lost – When a King decrees that his court be free of women so that he and his men may study without distraction, what could possibly go wrong? Nothing, until a beautiful princess and her delectable entourage pay a visit and put the men’s resolve to the ultimate test. Love letters gone awry set in motion a series of hysterical misadventures which turns the court topsy-turvy in a hilarious Shakespearean study of “Wooing 101.”
  • The Hound of the Baskervilles -When Sir Charles Baskerville is found dead on his estate with terror etched on his face and the paw prints of a gigantic hound beside his body, the great detective Sherlock Holmes is summoned, with his trusty assistant Watson in tow, to unravel the mystery and investigate an ancient curse. This mystery classic is performed by three actors creating dozens of characters in what can only be described as a “tour de farce”!
