About this show

Prepare for a jolly good night out as Artistic Director Barbara Gaines transports audiences to a small English town in the late 1940s—complete with the swinging music and dancing of the era. Embraced by audiences as one of Shakespeare's most delightful comedies, this high-spirited romp centers on the lovable rogue Sir John Falstaff. Hard up for money and seeking to restore his riches, Falstaff attempts to seduce the wives of Windsor's two wealthiest citizens. But the wooed Windsor women see through Falstaff's schemes, and his plans go awry with disastrous and hilarious consequences.
