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.
