The plays are always well performed but this venue is unique and spectacular. The backdrop for the stage is the Lake!

Shakespeare is performed outside on Lake Tahoe with the most wonderful view. The performances are in the evening so bring a jacket and some chairs. Food is available but you can also bring your own picnic.The whole experience is well worth a visit.

I have been to this event several years. It as always been an enjoyable experience. Consistantly good performances, nice selection of food and wine, and a spectacular venue. Shorter performances early in the day are offered for families with small children.

One of the great spits at Lake Tahoe is Sand Harbor where Shakespeare and other performances of music and musical theater are held every summer outdoors. Bring a picnic dinner or reserve seats with dinner and wine served to you!

We took our eleven and thirteen year olds to Comedy of Errors this summer (2016) and had a wonderful time. It was their first Shakespeare play but the relaxed atmosphere and outdoor setting were very welcoming. Great fun! Great food! Friendly staff and volunteers! And...More

This is a wonderful venue, complete with optional dinner foods, to enjoy live stage performances. The Shakespeare Festival offers a variety of entertainment other than just Shakespeare, too. Close parking, to boot! The address advertised is a bit misleading - the actual theater is at...More
