Lake Tahoe’s Only One-Act Play Competition & Staged Reading Event

Our vision for WordWave is an annual cultural event for locals and visitors to share their stories, create and be inspired by the beauty of Lake Tahoe. Every culture uses story to entertain, educate, preserve traditions, and connect. The underlying principle of WordWave is that stories, when shared with others, change lives. WordWave provides a venue for locals and visitors to experience these shared stories on stage, where the doors open to the shores of Lake Tahoe.

WordWave features an annual one-act play writing competition that opens in spring and running through summer that culminates in a winners’ event in the fall. Three submissions will be selected each year as the winners and each winner will receive a cash prize and be offered a 2-night stay in South Lake Tahoe to see their work directed and produced as a staged reading at the historic Valhalla Boathouse Theatre.

WordWave will offer two performances in 2024: Our annual Writer’s event willb e held on November 2, 2024 at 7pm will include the meet-the-Writer’s Wine & Dessert Reception immediately following in the Grand Hall. We will also offer a matinee on November 3, 2024 at 2pm.
