Play It Safe: We are committed to health and safety. Click here for 2021 Season Updates.

PLEASE NOTE: As the health and safety of our patrons, artists, staff, and volunteers remains our top priority, we have announced some changes to our 2021 season programming, performance calendar and in-theater operations. To implement these changes and assist current ticketholders with transition arrangements, we are temporarily pausing ticket sales. We look forward to resuming sales in May. We will continue to work closely with state/local government health officials and our regional partners to ensure that your visit to the theater is a safe one in 2021.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

A Riotously Irreverent Romp
By Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield
Directed by Charles Fee

Ticket sales resume in May. More information click here.

Three ambitious actors, clad in classic Converse tennis shoes and armed with an outrageous assortment of outerwear and props, cram the Bard’s entire canon of plays (and sonnets!) into two hours of sheer Elizabethan-esque ecstasy. Need we say more? Buckle your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride. This endearingly irreverent and lightning-paced romp through the greatest plays of all time will have you rolling with laughter and jumping in the aisles. Perhaps The Today Show captured its spirit best when they said, “If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show!”

Sales & Weather Policy:
Performances are not cancelled prior to their scheduled curtain time due to weather conditions. In the event of a weather-related cancellation during a performance, tickets and NV State Parks Entrance Passes can be exchanged for another performance within the same season at our on site ticket office according to its hours of operation. Announcements regarding weather will be made from the stage at the performance’s scheduled start time. Other ticket/entrance pass exchanges are permitted for performances within the same season and must be made 24 hours prior to the originally scheduled performance curtain time. A $5 per ticket fee will be charged. Exchanges are subject to availability and restrictions may apply. Tickets returned to our Box Office qualify as a tax-deductible donation if received 24 hours prior to a performance. NV State Parks Entrance Passes are not eligible for tax-deductible donation. In the event of a government-mandated performance cancellation(s), tickets may be returned as a tax-deductible donation or refunded by request.

Parking Note: A Nevada State Parks Entrance Pass is required to gain access to and park at the venue that Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival calls home for all events. The $10/per vehicle/per day fee is required by Nevada law and may be used to access Sand Harbor, Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park after 5:00 p.m. on the date listed on the Pass only. While LTSF does not benefit directly from Nevada State Parks Entrance Pass fees, we are pleased to afford our patrons the convenience of securing Nevada State Parks Entrance Passes in advance of their visits as part of our ticket purchasing processes. Please consider adding-on an Entrance Pass(es) as part of your purchase to facilitate ease of access during your visit. As this is an Entrance Pass as opposed a Parking Pass, please note that the fee applies to ridesharing services (Uber, Lyft, etc.) and drop-offs within the park.
