Shakespeare on the Plaza occurs at the Civic Plaza, June 8-July 1, 2018. This year, The Merry Wives of Windsor and As You Like It share a world: the dynamic, revolutionary and tumultuous 1960s. A world like Shakespeare's and our own. The music, ethos and passion of the time will inform both shows, and we hope to have some cross-over fun between the productions. More information forthcoming.

The Merry Wives of Windsor

The lecherous Falstaff attempts to seduce married women, who see through him but lead him on in order to turn the tables on him.
