Shakespeare Under the Stars: The Merry Wives of Windsor

Posted on Updated on


Rose of Athens Theatre brings laughter, mischief, and a dash of romance to Jittery Joe’s Roaster with Shakespeare’s roguish comedy, The Merry Wives of Windsor. Artistic Director, Danielle Bailey Miller is back in the director’s chair with the bard’s work; the last RoA Shakespeare she directed was ‘Shakespeare on the Lawn’-The Complete Works of William Shakespeare: Abridged in summer 2015. She is joined by a stellar production team and cast of brilliant actors. Bring your family and friends to picnic, then enjoy the live music and Shakespeare’s saucy comedy. The Merry Wives of Windsor follows Shakespeare’s bad boy, John Falstaff and his misadventures with the clever women of Windsor; add a sword fight between a doctor and a priest, some cross-dressing with a dose of tricks from the servants, and it makes for a multitude of hilarious hijinks along the way. Join Rose of Athens Theatre for an evening under the stars.

There will be a PREVIEW NIGHT on June 13 at 8:00 PM with a discounted ticket price of $7.00! That’s the Bard’s Bargain! Production dates are June 14-17 at 8:00 PM at Jittery Joe’s Roaster-425 Barber Street Athens, GA. Ticket prices are $16.00 for adults, $12.00 for students, $8.00 for children 12 years old and younger. There will be pre-show activities for the little ones to enjoy. Seating will be limited at the stage, first come, first served. RoA encourages audience members to bring lawn chairs or blankets, a picnic, and a friend and enjoy some of the finer things in life with the company of The Merry Wives of Windsor.
