July 29, 2022

10:00 am - 11:00 am

October 6 @ 2:30 pm

Friday, July 29, 2022, 10:00 am – 11:00 am, Will’s Kids is a FREE performance by Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival’s D.G. Menchetti Young Shakespeare Program. This hour-long performance transforms the main stage Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival production into a fun and interactive version appropriate for children of all ages. The whole family can enjoy a creative day at the stunning Heller Estate at the Tallac Historic Site.

Will’s Kids for the Arts brings together Lake Tahoe non-profit service organizations with local arts organizations to expose local youth to the arts and allow them to discover the joy of self-expression while promoting arts education on the South Shore. This event is free and open to the public, though reservations for the performance are requested.

Whether you are dashing up to Lake Tahoe for a quick weekend getaway, camping out or renting a cabin for a week, or you live in the region, the Valhalla Art, Music & Theatre Festival at the Heller “Valhalla” Estate hosts northern California and northern Nevada’s premier and most eclectic arts festival, featuring entertainment for literally everyone. Valhalla, a hidden Lake Tahoe treasure, is located on the Lake’s southwest shore three miles from South Lake Tahoe’s many hotels and restaurants and is walking and biking distance to several campgrounds including Fallen Lake Campground, and Camp Richardson.

The Valhalla Art, Music & Theatre Festival, is a total departure from the showroom and amphitheater shows offered by the casinos. The Festival offers a diverse array of entertainment from family-friendly musical and dramatic theatre to concerts with music from all genres, internationally touring artists, and the very best in local and regional acts, comedy improv, fine art shows, and workshops, and children’s art and drama camps. Tickets on sale

Traditionally, the Valhalla Art, Music & Theatre Festival has been a summer-long program June through September and theatre production in October, making the festival a five-month affair. Concerts and productions will take place in one of Valhalla’s three grand historic venues—the Grand Hall, with its massive 20-foot tall stone fireplace and walk-in hearth it seats 120; the Grand Lawn, lush green grass that flows out from the Great Hall and seats 400; and the restored Boathouse Theatre, a stunningly unique arched space that was restored in the late 1980s with the support and vision of the famed Dr. Leo Buscaglia that seats 164.

The Heller “Valhalla” Estate is one property on the Tallac Historic Site, a group of historic estates built in the late 1800s and early 1900s by wealthy west coast timber barons and captains of industry as summer homes. Now owned by the United States Forest Service, the Pope, Baldwin, and Valhalla properties are operated by local nonprofit organizations and are preserved and restored to create a stretch of Lake Tahoe shoreline frozen in time. Visitors enjoy interpretive features, restored buildings, museums, and wonderful beaches. Located next door to Camp Richardson, one of Tahoe’s longest operating resorts with a small hotel, cabins, campground, a general store, ice cream parlor, and the popular Beacon Grill, Valhalla is a quiet haven for exploration, picnicking, beach time, and the best arts entertainment offered in the Tahoe Basin.
