INFORMATION & TICKETING
In "The Merry Wives of Windsor," the women are not only wealthy; they're also wily as can be. So when hustling Sir John Falstaff seeks to woo them out of a fortune, things get interesting.
Key City Public Theatre is staging "Merry Wives" — replete with all of the glamour, jealousy and wit abundant in Shakespeare — at Chetzemoka Park, 1000 Jackson St., beginning Aug. 2. This lavish production, set in modern times, plays every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through Aug. 25; seating starts at 5:30 p.m. for the 6 p.m. show.
This summer's Shakespeare in the Park play will be an immersive experience, promised Key City Artistic Director Denise Winter. Performed in the round, it'll have the feeling of a community picnic, with youngsters playing tug-of-war and the park decorated for the outdoor party.
"The 'Merry Wives' ensemble will delight audiences with their farcical antics, pratfalls, improv, food fights, and more, as they tease, taunt and titillate their archrivals and your funny bone," promised Winter, the "Merry" director.
