The Merry Wives of Windsor

  • Thu Jul 16, 7 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Alton Mill Arts Centre

The Humber River Shakespeare Company presents "The Merry Wives of Windsor" Thursday, July 16.

Hard up for cash, the unscrupulous Falstaff hatches up a crazy plan that can’t possibly backfire – to cuckold Windsor’s wealthy husbands and get his greedy paws on their money.

However, the merry wives devise a scheme of their own to teach him a well-deserved lesson in Wooing 101. Even with an ego as big as his voracious appetite, Falstaff’s silver tongue cannot prevent the payback to come.

Set in the electric and “Far Out” world of the 1960s, and featuring puppets, music and some audience participation, this hilariously magnificent treat of artful deceit is not to be missed.  

Admission by donation to HRSC, suggested amount: $20. Advance tickets available online from Humber River Shakespeare Company. Bring your own lawn chair, or if you use one of ours, an additional donation to the Alton Millpond fund would be appreciated.
