This is a wonderful venue, complete with optional dinner foods, to enjoy live stage performances. The Shakespeare Festival offers a variety of entertainment other than just Shakespeare, too. Close parking, to boot! The address advertised is a bit misleading - the actual theater is at Sand Harbor Beach. Chair seating is provided.

You can not beat a play under the stars and moon shimmering on Lake Tahoe on a warm summer evening. The productions are always first rate. I recommend having a reservation for chair seating on the second tier. The food is quite good and a nice menu to choose from. Wine is also available. But you can bring your own... More

Beautiful setting to view plays. Seating is outstanding with no bad seats. Get there early to enjoy food and drinks. Parking is the only negative so get there early.

We've been to Shakespeare in the Park for the last eight seasons. Incredible spot on beautiful lake Tahoe. Cast and crew always create a wonderful night.

Even if you are not a Shakespeare fan, do try to attend an event here. There are many other concerts throughout the summer season. You will be sitting in a natural sand amphitheater, overlooking Lake Tahoe and watching a beautiful sunset. Worth the cost of admission alone!

Beautiful venue. Fun way to have a lakeside supper and an evening of theater. The volunteer ticket seller was jolly and welcoming, the young woman in the souvenir store was pleasant, but every member of the paid staff whom I encountered was gruff at best and downright hostile in the worst instance. I'm not overly sensitive, but those encounters ruined... More

The venue sells food and alcohol. It also allows guests to bring their own food and drinks. Thle amphitheater is right at the lake. Everey sit is good to watch the show and view the lake. Parking is free after 5pm. Bring jacket or blanket ad it gets cool at night.

Took the entire family to the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival tonight, we saw A Comedy of Errors. Great show, even my young children enjoyed it. The actors and the set were amazing. The vendors and food was great too. My wife and I had been here before and really enjoyed it. The set is in Sand Harbor on the NV... More

We attended "A Comedy of Errors" this year at the Sand Harbor Shakespeare Festival. What a great venue this is. Outside in the forest with the lake in the background - Amazing! We sat at the tables that are just behind the seats closest to the stage and it was perfect. The play was extremely well performed with great timing... More
