Spring 2020 Show

Love’s Labor's Lost

A Musical Comedy Based on Shakespeare’s Play
& Adapted for Yosemite National Park

For all ages and all creatures

Our 2020 show is a 90 minute musical comedy uniquely adapted for Yosemite National Park, based on Shakespeare's Love's Labor's Lost.

Two bands go on songwriting retreats in Yosemite determined to focus only on their art, and discover a world that needs their music, and their love. Join us for a celebration of nature, harmony, and connection.

What saves the Earth? Science, art, love…and a bit of Shakespeare! 


We are looking for actors, singers, and instrumentalists who can help bring this show to life.
