A Midsummer Night's Dream

The Sierra Repertory Theatre performs one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies. Two pairs of lovers and a rag-tag group of actors get lost in the woods.

Lunch is included at the City Hotel prior to the 2pm matinee.

Join your fellow Sports Leisure travelers for a late morning trip to Truckee. Check into the Hampton Inn, don your best 60’s apparel (optional) before dinner at Moody’s before enjoying the show. Imagine, this venue has one of the most stunning backdrops in the world, a Lake Tahoe sunset!
