Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival

July 5, 2019 - August 25, 2019

Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival, on the shores of Lake Tahoe. July 5th- August 25th, 2019, 

The Taming of the Shrew
Shakespeare’s Uproarious Battle of the Sexes
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Sara Bruner

Enjoy extraordinary entertainment in an exceptional setting!

Imagine your toes in the sand, a fantastic bottle of wine nearby, a gourmet meal in hand and first-class entertainment before you… all while basking in a perfect Lake Tahoe sunset with your friends and family. You’re not dreaming, you’re experiencing the enchantment of Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival at Sand Harbor at Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park

The only thing that stands between Bianca and a bevy of eligible suitors is her quick-tempered, elder sister Katherina. That is until fortune-hunting Petruchio takes up the challenge to “tame” Kate and make her his wife. A madcap marriage and much mayhem ensues in a beguiling battle of wits and wills between the sexes which ultimately reveals an unlikely romance. Can love tame a shrewish heart and surprise an unbridled bachelor?

Back by popular demand, for this production, we again will transform our Warren Edward Trepp Stage into an Elizabethan theater, including SEATING SECTIONS ON STAGE – surrounding the playing area and creating an immersive experience for audiences! Consider ONSTAGE seating when planning your visit to enjoy the fullness of this unique production. (Onstage seats are padded benches with backs similar in style to church pews. The bench seat is padded. Seating is assigned.)
