Shakespeare Festival begins again

The Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival started Friday night at Sand Harbor State Park. This year, performances of “As You Like” will run through Aug. 24.

Other performances featured throughout the summer include the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra’s Broadway on the Beach: Bravo Broadway, Chautauqua: Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, Sierra Nevada Ballet: Swan Lake at the Lake, Reno Jazz Orchestra: Bring Me the Funk of James Brown, Tahoe Players: Sweeney Todd, a soul music performance by Brooker T. Jones; and a spectacle of visual artists, dance, storytelling and live music during the Trails and Vistas World Concert.

Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty sponsors the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival.

The events and performances are made possible by sponsorship of the 42-year program of outdoor performance theater in Lake Tahoe, as well as efforts to nurture the budding talents of young actors through the D.J. Menchetti Young Shakespeare Program, InterACT Workshops, and Midsummer’s Camp.
