INCLINE VILLAGE, NV – Entertainment, food, family, and friends will converge once again under the stars on the scenic shore of Lake Tahoe this summer as Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival (LTSF) launches its 50th Anniversary Season in 2022. Showcasing live entertainment seven nights a week, July 1 – August 22, 2022 at Sand Harbor, Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park, LTSF’s 2022 lineup is headlined by mega-hit productions of Much Ado About Nothing, Shakespeare’s sublime battle of wits and wills, and Mamma Mia!, the smash hit feel-good musical. Mamma Mia! (Music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus / Some songs with Stig Anderson / Book by Catherine Johnson / Originally conceived by Judy Craymer) is presented through special arrangement with MUSIC THEATRE INTERNATIONAL (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI, www.MTIShows.com.
Much Ado About Nothing will be directed by LTSF Producing Artistic Director, Charles Fee. Mamma Mia! will be helmed by director, Victoria Bussert. Both productions will be performed in rotating repertory, Tuesdays through Sundays at 7:30 p.m. Discounted Two-Show Packages are on sale now.
Beatrice and Benedick would rather exchange scorching insults than sweet nothings in Much Ado About Nothing. However, the pugnacious pair is forced to forge a partnership in order to defend house and honor, and salvage the true love of Hero and Claudio after deceptions destroy the lovers’ wedding day. Will the earnest endeavor to restore a young romance elicit an unexpected change of heart for the effort’s unlikely collaborators as well?
Mamma Mia! takes place on a tiny Greek island, where Sophie is making final preparations for her wedding day in paradise. Little does her mother Donna know that Sophie’s last-minute preparations include sleuthing out who her father may be among three possible candidates that she’s secretly invited. The storytelling magic of pop-hit songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter, family and friendship…which concludes with a trip down the aisle that audiences will never forget!
The LTSF entertainment experience is complimented by al fresco dining at its on-site restaurant – Shakespeare’s Kitchen. Patrons may choose to bring their own food or drink for picnicking. Complete information about picnicking and cooler size limitations may be found at www.laketahoeshakespeare.com/visit/faq.

LTSF’s educational outreach programs reach over 7,000 young people each year, through two free programs, the D. G. Menchetti Young Shakespeare Program, an interactive adaptation of a Shakespeare play for children performed at Sand Harbor and around the region during the summer, and InterACT, an in-school residency program which explores Shakespeare and the classics in schools throughout the region during the academic year.
