Regarding the current COVID-19 situation, Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival is following the lead of city, state and federally elected officials, as well as implementing strategies recommended by public health authorities. We are also working closely with Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park as we maintain our regularly scheduled events and performances in July and August as planned. We remain vigilant, and are prepared to make decisions based on current needs, as well as in response to changing conditions.
