Summer 2020 Production

At Shake on the Lake, we are committed to presenting professional theater to underserved communities. We are continuing our fast, fun, physical style in a new way to serve the current needs of our audiences.

For 2020 Summer Season, we are devising something new. We will be announcing the show at the end of June and where you can see it.

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!
