September 12 – November 23

“Wives may be merry, and yet honest too.” – Act 4, Scene 2

Embark on a delightful journey of mischief, pranks, and folly with The Merry Wives of Windsor, a play that, according to urban legend, was inspired by Queen Elizabeth’s request for a tale featuring the eccentric Sir John Falstaff in love. However, in this uproarious comedy, rather than finding Falstaff in love, we find him entangled in the shrewd schemes of two clever Windsor wives who unite to outwit one of Shakespeare’s most endearing scoundrels. Set against the backdrop of Elizabethan domestic life and featuring an eclectic ensemble of zany characters, this irresistible comic confection weaves together romance and farce to create a joyful story of community and family.

Don’t miss your chance to witness the playful high jinks and clever antics that will unfold onstage in this production directed by Dawn Monique Williams. Secure your tickets now for an outing filled with laughter, tomfoolery, and the timeless allure of Shakespearean comedy!
