Mammoth Shakespeare Festival was created out of the longstanding local event Shakespeare In The Woods produced by Sierra Classic Theatre and the Mammoth Lakes Repertory Theatre. The non-profit theatre companies came together to co-produce a Shakespeare Festival in the town of Mammoth Lakes for the first time in the summer of 2021. Keeping the festival performances free to everyone where nobody is turned away for lack of funds is one of the important missions of the festival to make sure Live Shakespeare can be experienced by all.
Introducing The Mammoth Shakespeare Festival’s
Every day at 5:30 before the 7pm curtain, while you enjoy a picnic or arrive early to get good seats, we will introduce the play you are about to see. Written by a Shakespeare scholar, the presentation will dive into plot lines, themes, characters, history, and help immerse you in the rich texts that have entertained audiences for four hundred years. A great way to get new Shakespeare audiences up to speed. Or, for Shakespeare enthusiasts, a wonderful way to dig deeper into your understanding of Shakespeare’s brilliant mind.
