It really doesn’t get better than this.  

Make your plans now to sit under the stars to see the stars live on stage during the Monday Night Showcase Series performances overlooking Sand Harbor at Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park.   

With jaw-dropping views of the Lake and Alpenglow over the Sierra, you will want to make it a full night of fun with your toes in the sand and beverage in hand.

Come early to dine al fresco from “Shakespeare’s Kitchen” or bring a picnic to complement the occasion while you experience some of the finest entertainers in the country!  And be sure to bring a warm jacket or blanket as the temperatures drop quickly after the sun sets over the Sierra.
