About Shakespeare in Yosemite

Shakespeare in Yosemite was founded in 2017 to bring short, accessible, and FREE productions of Shakespeare’s plays to Yosemite National Park for Earth Day and Shakespeare’s birthday each April. Our shows are 90 minutes long, feature lots of music, and are adapted to address issues relevant to Earth Day and Yosemite. Casts are made up of UC Merced students, park rangers and Yosemite employees, and community members.

We will next peform Romeo and Juliet in Yosemite: The Musical (This time they don't die!) April 21-23, 2023, in the Curry Village Amphitheatre.

Recent news:

Our newest show, a pop music-filled Romeo and Juliet in Yosemite, is currently in rehearsals and we can't wait to bring it to Curry Village April 21-23, 2023, for Earth Day weekend.

We returned to the Park in 2022 for performances of Love's Labor's Lost, set in 1969-70 and celebrating the first Earth Day with lots of music. A free film of that production is available here.

In 2021, we filmed a musical adaptation of Cymbeline called Imogen in the Wild, shot in Merced and Yosemite and released for free on YouTube. 
Learn more about our mission, what we have done, and our plans for the future in this interview with Hark Journal, featuring co-founders Katherine Steele Brokaw and Paul Prescott, or this interview with Sofia Andom, star of Imogen in the Wild.
