What could be better than enjoying the spectacular view of the lake at Sand Harbor, while supporting your local community? The Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival relies on our fantastic group of enthusiastic volunteers to help run the Festival every year. Joining the Festival as a volunteer offers many benefits including meeting and working with other fun and caring people, supporting the arts in Northern Nevada and earning FREE Festival tickets. Whether you can support the Festival for a few hours or become involved for many nights, we welcome you to our family of volunteers.
Come join us in 2013 and fill your summer with A Midsummer Night's Dream as well as favorite events such as the Reno Philharmonic and much more. We welcome individuals and families to fill positions. For corporate and civic groups, it’s a great team-building event.
