INCLINE VILLAGE, NV (December 2, 2012) - Extraordinary entertainment, fantastic food, family and friends will converge under the stars on the scenic shore of Lake Tahoe this summer as Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival (LTSF) - the premiere summer event in the Reno/Tahoe region - launches its 2013 season. Featuring live entertainment seven nights a week from July 12 - August 25 at Sand Harbor State Park, the season is anchored by the Festival's mainstage production of William Shakespeare's magical comic masterpiece, A Midsummer Night's Dream; performed Tuesdays through Sundays each week at 7:30 p.m. LTSF's Producing Artistic Director, Charles Fee directs the production.
"We are thrilled to continue Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival's
forty-year legacy of producing extraordinary professional theater under the
stars for the residents of and visitors to the Lake Tahoe region," said LTSF
Producing Artistic Director, Charles Fee. "The breathtaking view of Lake Tahoe is
the perfect backdrop for our 2013 production of Shakespeare's magical comedy."
Featuring gorgeous costumes, stunning sets and one of the most talented professional acting companies in the West, LTSF's A Midsummer Night's Dream is sure to enchant the entire family. An exhilarating night of midsummer madness, this magical comedy brims with mistaken identity, mismatched lovers and mischief-making fairies. Boldly inspired by the marvelously mod influences of a rock ‘n' roll infused 1960s London, the Festival's production of Shakespeare's comic masterpiece ensnares two pairs of lovers and a rustic troupe of would-be actors in a magical-mystery tour de force. A Midsummer Night's Dream is a joyful celebration of love lost, transformed and restored that casts a powerfully pleasing spell on audiences of all ages.
A six-event Monday Night Showcase performance series will augment the Festival's 2013 mainstage production and feature a diverse array of live musical and entertainment acts from a variety of genres. Monday Night Showcase performances will commence at 7:30 p.m. each Monday beginning July 15, 2013. Details and complete lineup will be announced at a future date.
