The Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival traditionally runs from mid-July through late August each year with additional supplemental events scheduled through September. Most employment opportunities are available during the actual run of the Festival. However, some positions may offer pre/post run opportunities. These additional work opportunities are generally “on-call” and may be offered to employees as they are hired. Additional opportunities may involve set up the venue during the months of late May through the end of June, post-Festival event assistance and end-of-season venue strike.
All available employment opportunities will be listed here. All applications submitted online will be kept on file for current and future consideration.
Other production positions for 2016 will be listed as they become available.
