Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival

Experience Sand Harbor State Park’s annual Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival for an extraordinary entertainment in an exceptional setting

2005 HIGHWAY 28

(775) 832-1616

Entertainment, food, family, and friends will converge under the stars on the scenic shore of Lake Tahoe this summer as Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival (LTSF) launches its 2016 season.


Seven nights a week, July 8 – August 21, 2016 at Sand Harbor in Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park, Lake Tahoe

Shakespeare Festival’s 44th year is headlined by productions of The Comedy of Errors, Shakespeare’s double dose of laughter, and Forever Plaid, a pitch-perfect jukebox musical, and is rounded out by a Showcase Series line-up. 

    • Double your pleasure with a fantastic Shakespearean farce. When two twin brothers and their two twin servants are unexpectedly reunited after three decades apart, an unsuspecting port city is torn apart at its seams. Design-inspired by Rio de Janeiro's colorful Carnival celebration, this unforgettable production is sure to delight. With a zany cast of unforgettable characters, myriad mistaken identities and contagious musical rhythms, Shakespeare’s greatest comedy delivers triumphantly on its famous title.


    • On one stormy night in the 1960s, four eager singers known as The Plaids met their untimely ends in a cherry red, 1954 Mercury on the way to their first big gig. In 2016, this quartet of comic crooners gets one last chance to return from the afterlife to do the show they never got to perform. The Plaids deliver delightfully with playful patter and angelic voices in an unforgettable show that will have audiences rolling in the aisles when they're not humming along to the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950s.

The productions will be performed in rotating repertory Tuesdays through Sundays at 7:30 p.m.


The LTSF entertainment experience is complimented by al fresco dining at its on-site restaurant – Shakespeare’s Kitchen. Patrons may also choose to bring their own food or drink for picnicking. Information about picnicking and cooler size limitations may be found at
