Photography Contest:  Shakespeare at the Lake

Contact: Laura Barnes – 24 July 2023


LAKEPORT, Calif --- If you’re searching for a way to support local community theater AND make a little money at the same time, look no further. The 8th annual Shakespeare at the Lake is just around the corner, and the production team is hosting a photography contest!

The rules are simple. Attend one (or more) of our free performances, take some amazing pictures of the show, and then post them to the Shakespeare at the Lake facebook page.

Free performances of this year’s play, “Measure for Measure,” will take place July 29 and July 30 at Library Park in Lakeport, and August 4, 5, and 6 at Austin Park in Clearlake. Photos must be posted by August 8 at 11:59 p.m.

The photos that get the most reactions on our facebook page will win! Voting closes on August 12 at 11:59 p.m. Three photographers will be awarded prize money. First place will receive $150, second place $100, and third place $50. The photography contest is sponsored by the Clear Lake Campground.

Actors will take the stage at 7p.m., but don’t miss pre-show entertainment featuring string quartet, “Faire Measure,” at 6 p.m. Food and drink from some of your favorite local vendors will also be available an hour before the play begins.

Shakespeare at the Lake is a joint production of Mendocino College and the Lake County Theatre Company, and is made possible by generous support from the Lake County Friends of Mendocino
