If you are anywhere near Incline at Lake Tahoe, this is a must. Sunset over Sand Harbor beach and Lake Tahoe with either a picnic dinner or delicious food and wine you can purchase on-site followed by first-class productions of Shakespeare with a variety of interpretations. My husband, who is often not a fan of how Shakespeare plays are produced,... More

Outstanding! Opening night of Romeo and Juliet with just a short sprinkle of rain and rainbow stage center about 1/4 way through. A bit cold, bring warm clothes. The performance, setting and staff are amazing, curtious and professional. Tickets are prized to accommodate everyone. We have two teenaged boys who complained about having to leave another family event to attend... More

Summer is not Summer without a visit to Sand Harbor and the Shakespeare Festival where it is more than just Shakespeare...this year I have tickets to the Fantastiks and the Reno Philharmonic tribute to The Beatles. There are two ways to make this memorable...first you can get up early and snag a parking space at Sand Harbor (They fill up... More

This started out a decade ago as a picnic by the lake with a local Shakespeare company doing 2 plays each summer. It has grown into a blockbuster attraction with much more comfortable seating, many food choices, and a far more professional production. It is a very pleasant evening and a must do for visitors.

Finally summered in Tahoe during the Shakespeare Festival. This is the most incredible feature of summer in Lake Tahoe. The venue is breathtaking, the theatre company is of the highest calibre, and their interpretation of As You Like in summer 2014 was amusingly clever. We opted for Adirondack seats in the second row, and it was excellent, but I think... More

This is a wonderful event! It gets better every year. The improvements in the venue are great. Almost the whole theater now has comfortable chairs set in place. They left a little space up top for those preferring to picnic on their blankets. Terrific stage and sound system. Very talented actors. Totally entertaining!

The production, actors, set, and concessions are always wonderful. I give it four stars because if you sit up close the show is fantastic, but if you sit further away it is hard to see and hear everything. The venue is outdoors and while the scenery is beautiful it does get very cold at night, so come prepared!

So there is an outdoor theater and the seating faces the lake (and is on the lake at Sand Harbor). There is food, drink and the mountains of Tahoe. Plus the bonus of a well acted play. Always a night I love every summer and will not miss. We show up early and have a home-cooked gourmet meal with a... More

Loved the setting on Lake Tahoe at Sand Harbor. Gourmet food and drink. Great coffee, tea and dessert at intermission or bring a bootle of wine in. Dress for cool after sun sets and a blanket to cuddle.

Attended "As You Like It" at outdoor San Harbor theatre. They have been holding Shakespeare Festival for over 40 years there and they seem to have the logistics down. We called to order tickets and I got advice from an extremely nice person on the phone. The volunteers who man the ticket area and help you find your seat are... More
