LIVE 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 2017 season.
Shakespeare Festival’s headline productions:
LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST
Shakespeare’s Labor of Love and Laughter
By William Shakespeare
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
A Hilarious Sherlock Holmes Whodunit
By Sir Arthur Conan Doyle / Adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson
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”! Packed with verbal and visual ingenuity, sleight of hand and a whirlwind of quick-changing characters - this suspenseful theatrical adventure delivers delightfully!
