Young Shakespeare 2021: Stay Tuned for details

Interactive Family Fun!
Our education programming engages all ages.

Each year the D.G. Menchetti Young Shakespeare Program presents an interactive, one-hour adaptation of an LTSF mainstage production that is created with the young audience member in mind at Sand Harbor at Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park. We also share the production with other venues throughout the Reno/Sparks, Minden and Tahoe/Truckee region.

This FREE program (suggested donation $5 per adult; $1 per child) affords an amazing live theater experience for young audience members and their families while simultaneously providing opportunities for young and aspiring actors from regional middle and high schools to participate in the production as performers!

Since its inception, Young Shakespeare performances have connected over 60,000 children to the classics – thanks to generous support from LTSF Chair Emeritus, and Young Shakespeare namesake, Geno Menchetti.

Since 2002 Young Shakespeare has entertained over 70,000 children and their families around the region. Join us this summer as we present an hour- long adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing specifically designed for children and adults alike!

Join the cast of the D.G. Menchetti Young Shakespeare Program as the cast of local professional actors team up with some of the area’s middle and high school students to present William Shakespeare’s, Much Ado About Nothing.

Join us at the D.G. Menchetti Young Shakespeare Program performances!
