D.G. Menchetti Young Shakespeare Program

Each year the D.G. Menchetti Young Shakespeare Program presents an interactive, one-hour adaptation of a Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival mainstage production that is created with the young audience member in mind. In addition to Sand Harbor, the production travels to other venues throughout the Reno/Sparks, Minden and Tahoe/Truckee region.

Performances are free (suggested donation $5 per adult; $1 per child), but reservations are required due to limited seating capacity at Sand Harbor and other venues. Reservations are available from the D.G. Menchetti Young Shakespeare Program website.
