Shake on the Lake presents shows in the spirit of Shakespeare, which for us means:

• We bring the entire set with us and set it up, perform, and tear down within 3 hours

• We require a single electric outlet (ok two would be great) 

• We our own sound and tech and manage it ourselves

• Music is core to who we are, so expect to hear our company sing!

• Just like Shakespeare’s actors, we use modern references and improv

• Fast, fun, physical productions show spectacle with stage combat and physical theater

• Audience participation is not required, but we will be interacting with you!

• Contact us at for pricing to bring us to your community
