“One touch of nature makes the world kin.” ~ William Shakespeare
In 2011, Josh Rice and Pilar McKay founded Shake on the Lake over facebook. The hope was to bring Shakespeare to the shores of Silver Lake, the Westernmost Finger Lake. Performing in their hometown eventually grew into touring to other rural communities in Upstate New York.
SOTL has grown into a touring company that hosts professional actors from throughout the country at Silver Lake. Shake on the Lake now tours in five counties in Upstate New York, brings Shakespeare into the local schools & communities with Arts Education residency programs, partners with Voices UnCaged to bring theatre arts into correctional facilities, and continues creative placemaking through theatre to rural communities throughout the area.
- Production: Creating fun, family-friendly, outdoor productions of Shakespeare and other works, of the highest artistic standards
- Loving the Lake: Utilizing cost-efficient, green production practices; recycling and refurbishing found materials for costumes, and sets; conserving energy by performing in daylight; all in an effort to preserve and celebrate the natural landscape playing host to the festival
- Accessibility: Recognizing the power of, and believing in community, through outreach, education, and promoting local businesses and individuals as artistic partners
- Youth Development: Cultivating the talents of local youth through teaching educational theatre workshops in conjunction with the festival
