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.
Join us next spring for A Midsummer Night's Dream in Yosemite, April 26-28, 2024 in Curry Village (and April 25 at UC Merced).
Our newest show, was a pop music-filled Romeo and Juliet in Yosemite that played at UC Merced on April 20th and in Curry Village April 21-23, 2023, for Earth Day weekend. A free film of that production is available here.
