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

My wife's birthday falls in the middle of August. The last two years we've made attendance at this Festival part of her birthday celebration. The venue is unrivaled and the performances are outstanding. We've purchased upper and side gallery seating for $25/person and, though some distance from the stage, still have a good view and are able to hear the... More

We sat in the Premier Seating section and it was great to be so close to the performers! What a beautiful, sand, beach setting outdoors. Simply breathtaking! Loved the performance of "As You Like It" – the characters are terrific and the Fool is hysterical! My only wish was that the food was not so expensive... As a tourist, we... More

This year's production 'as you like it' was excellent as each year's play is. The twist they put on these plays and the setting at the lake make it a not to be missed event. We bring our own food and wine but usually have an intermission hot chocolate.
