About Shakespeare in The Woods

Performing Shakespearean plays alfresco is a world-wide summer ritual and a natural fit for the stunning outdoor beauty of Mammoth Lakes.  This SCT tradition dates back to 2001, when the young company performed A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Hayden Cabin. Now nothing beats an alpine summer twilight with the scent of Jeffrey Pines wafting through the air. For the past 8 years local and visiting audiences have brought their evening picnics to The Woods at Mammoth Lakes for an evening of outdoor family fun. These productions have a tremendous following, with SCT keeping audiences coming back by dazzling them with unique takes on old classics: Twelfth Night set in the wild west; The Two Gentleman of Verona set in the roaring 20’s; and A Mammoth Midsummer Night’s Dream set right here in Mammoth Lakes. With a mix of seasoned actors and Shakespearean newbies, SCT’s summer shows never fail to delight.
