Well oops! There is so much going on here at Lake Tahoe to write about, that we’ve missed posting about the Annual Shakespeare at Sand Harbor Festival, which started July 11th.  But no need to fret, fortunately you’ve still got plenty of time to catch a performance, as the festival runs through August 24th.

There’s nothing like an evening under the stars, a glass of wine and thou.

This year’s performances feature the romantic comedy ‘As You Like It’, with tickets ranging from $15 – $85.

In addition, the theater group has Monday Night’s off, and those of us long familiar with the Shakespeare plays are treated to something a little different. Here’s the calendar:

July 21 – Henry Ford and Thomas Edison

July 28 – Swan Lake

August 4 – The Funk of James Brown

August 11 – Sweeney Todd

August 18 – Booker T

Do be sure to bring a picnic. Last year, we sat next to some vacationers who marveled at our ‘spread’ of culinary delights. “We had no idea you could do this!” they exclaimed. Yes, we locals know that bringing good eats and beverages is as much a part of the annual event as the performances themselves.  Don’t feel like going through the hassle? Many local stores make picnic baskets for the event. You can also reserve the Premium Seating and Cafe Table sections or avail yourselves of the food and wine booths and be treated to the Gourmet Offerings from ‘Shakespeare’s Kitchen’ right at the venue. (Do plan to come early to partake. Gates open at 5:30pm).

Also note, that lower gallery is assigned seating. The upper gallery requires you to bring your own low backed chairs and picnic blankets.
