Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival
Incline Village, NV Directed by Charles Fee. Our 2013 season commences with an exhilarating production that features gorgeous costumes, stunning sets and one of the most talented professional acting companies in the West! Shakespeare'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, our 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.
