About Shakespeare in Yosemite

This spring: Love's Labors Lost: a 90-minute comedy about love, nature, and Yosemite, performed for free in Curry Village, April 24-26

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 and community members, and shows are directed by Shakespeare in Yosemite co-founders Katherine Steele Brokaw (UC Merced) and Paul Prescott (University of Warwick).

We return to Yosemite National Park in April 2020 for a newly adapted production of Love’s Labor’s Lost, which will be performed April 22nd in Merced, CA, and April 24-26 in the outdoor amphitheatre in Yosemite National Park's Curry Village.
