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.
We returned to the Park last spring for performances of Love's Labor's Lost, set in 1969-70 and celebrating the first Earth Day with lots of music.
