Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival

It's a classic intersect, where nature (almost) steals the show. Crystalline blue water, majestic peaks and alpenglow sunsets ignite the senses and set the stage for Shakespeare performed on the shore of Lake Tahoe every summer. 

Nowhere else will you find a more perfect outdoor venue for a theatrical performance or event. A long standing tradition for Lake Tahoe visitors and local residents, this classic festival presents Shakespeare under the stars on the mesmerizing east shore.

Imagine your toes in the sand, a vintage bottle of wine, a gourmet meal from Shakespeare's Kitchen and a night of 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.  The Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival features live entertainment seven nights a week from July through August featuring a masterpiece from William Shakespeare. The summer festival is complimented by al fresco dining at its on-site restaurant - Shakespeare's Kitchen.

The annual Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival is presented at the Warren Edward Trepp Stage located at Sand Harbor State Park, on the north east shore of the lake, just 3 miles east of Incline Village. Nevada.
