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 are excited to announced Shakespeare in Yosemite 2021: a filmed and musical adaptation of Cymbeline called Imogen in the Wild, shot in Merced and Yosemite and released for free on YouTube on November 20th, 2021. The film is part of the worldwide Cymbeline in the Anthropocene project, sponsored by UC Merced Arts and Yosemite National Park. Featuring Lisa Wolpe, Dennis Brown, Connie Stetson, Lee Stetson, Tonatiuh Newbold, Chase Brantley, Andrew Perez, and more, and introducing Sofia Andom as Imogen. 
Music by Cathryn Flores, Tonatiuh Newbold, and Serena Johnson. Shawn Overton, Director of Photography, Will Darpinian, Sound and Music Director.
