For nearly a decade, Mendocino College and the Lake County Theatre Company have joined forces to bring Shakespeare’s celebrated plays to the local stage. Shakespeare at the Lake will return this summer with its 8th annual production. This year’s offering is Measure for Measure. 

As summer calendars begin to fill up with weddings, concerts, and vacations, be sure to set aside an evening to enjoy a live Shakespeare performance by the beautiful shores of Clear Lake.  Performances are scheduled for July 29 and 30 at Library Park in Lakeport and August 4-6 at Austin Park in Clearlake. 

Experience the gripping tale of power and corruption in Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, like never before! This new dramatic adaptation will take you on a thrilling journey through the twisted world of justice and authority, where no one is truly innocent and power can corrupt even the most virtuous.

Don’t miss this unforgettable theatrical experience that will leave you questioning the very nature of power and corruption. Save the date, and be there to be a part of the conversation about one of Shakespeare’s most thought-provoking plays.

If you’re interested in being a part of the production as a cast member, auditions are scheduled for May 20 and 23.  Actors and backstage crew of all experience levels are needed.  For more information, contact [email protected] or check the Lake County Theatre Company website at  

Shakespeare at the Lake is generously supported by the Lake County Friends of Mendocino College, the City of Lakeport,  the Clear Lake Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Clearlake.
