Live Entertainment at Sand Harbor Returns to Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival Returns to Sand Harbor State Park

Mama Mia! The Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival is ready to bring back live entertainment in their classic style this summer - July 2 through August 22, 2021!

Tickets are now on sale for their main productions which include Much Ado About Nothing and Broadway hit "Mama Mia." Within the next few weeks, they will unveil the show schedule for our favorite thing to do on Monday nights ... the Showcase Series.

At our property management and vacation rental company in North Lake Tahoe, we heard a rumor from a good source that the Reno Jazz Orchestra plans to be on stage TWO nights this year presenting a "Celebration of Earth, Wind, and Fire," and on Labor Day Weekend they will share the stage with Diane Schurr who is one of the top jazz vocalists in America.

And that is just the beginning of what you can expect (if all goes as planned) this summer in Inline Village and Crystal Bay.

Nestled throughout our mountain community are exceptional events and venues to experience some of the West’s finest arts and culture.  Blessed with year-round inspiration within the majestic High Sierra, locals and visitors alike can enjoy a remarkable combination of arts and culture indoors and out.  Our year-round event calendar always includes live theater, classical and jazz music performances, historical tours from the mountains to the lake, and motivational and artistic workshops.

At the heart of the art scene are opportunities to fuel one’s passion for their love of the performing arts.  In the summer months, Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival takes the stage on the edge of Lake Tahoe at Sand Harbor State Park.  The performance schedule always includes one or two of your favorite plays counterbalanced (during the troupes days off) with music from the Reno Jazz Orchestra, the Reno Philharmonic, Sierra Nevada Ballet, and guest performances from GRAMMY award-winning vocalists and musicians. Tahoe Symphony Orchestra,  Tahoe TOCCATA, performs year-round at various venues in the surrounding area. Classical Tahoe is a seasonal festival held each year in late July and
August under the tent on the Sierra Nevada University campus.
Most of the organizations listed above also offer educational programs for students and adults throughout the year.

For those who want to enhance their own artistic skills, Incline Village Crystal Bay offers an excellent selection of studios that offer private and semi-private fine-arts workshops through the Holman Arts Center, Incline Village Music, Easel and Wine, and other private lessons.
