  Mar 22 - Apr 07, 2024

  Hanna Theatre, Playhouse Square

  Run Time: 2 hours and 30 minutes (including intermission)

About the Show

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Terri McMahon

Meet the rotund rascal Sir John Falstaff and the wise wives of Windsor in one of Shakespeare’s most raucous comedies. With an ego as big as his voracious appetite, Falstaff conspires to woo the two wealthiest married ladies in town and pocket their riches. However, Mistress Ford and Mistress Page devise a scheme of their own to teach him a well-deserved lesson in Wooing 101. Join us and feast on a hilariously magnificent treat of monogamously artful deceit.


All patrons must have a ticket. Only children age two and older will be admitted to Great Lakes Theater performances. All ticket sales are final. There are no refunds unless Great Lakes Theater cancels a performance. (Should a cancellation occur, notification and ticketing options will be sent via email as soon as possible before the affected performance.) Plays, players, directors, and dates are subject to change. We do not provide refunds for inclement weather.


The Merry Wives of Windsor is part of Shakespeare in American Communities, a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.


Great Lakes Theater programming is supported in part by the Ohio Arts Council, which receives support from the State of Ohio and the National Endowment for the Arts.
