If you want to enjoy somequality family time then the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival at Sand Harbor State Park is clearly the place you should visit. An experience for all ages, in a calming state, at the beach, with Shakespeare masterpieces being played out right in front of you, it’s not farfetched to say it’s both a relaxing and cultural event.

Great Talent on Stage

The extremely talented actors bring up the atmosphere from William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream to a point that it looks more like reality than just a play anymore. The story mixes a wide variety of characters with hidden identities, the love between them and those that try to tear it apart make the play affect you more than if it was your own true story .That is the effect that the Shakespeare Festival brings to visitors of this wonderful Lake Tahoe festival. Nevertheless it is certainly a festival for all ages where everyone is welcomed in a warm relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.

Get There Early

The true tragedy would actually be not bringing a picnic with you because the food atthe Shakespeare’s Kitchen is as good as the plays. The gate and the amphitheater are opened at 5:30 p.m. and early access is allowed to areas such as Shakespeare’s Kitchen, The Bar and the souvenir shop.

There’s no need to worry if you arrive too early since there are pre-show cocktails. On the other side you might like to enjoy the beautiful afternoon sunshine or the newly renovated dining area.  You can also just stay on the beach and relax until the play starts with family or friends and enjoy the warm evening weather. There are plenty of great spots on the beach where you can sit back and relax and enjoy the wonderful views of Lake Tahoe.
