On the Edge Theatre Productions’ Shakespeare in the Hills is proud to announce our summer show – “The Merry Wives of Windsor”
“O powerful Love, that in some respects makes a beast a man, in some other a man a beast.”
Sir John Falstaff and his entourage are wearing out their welcome in Windsor. The city isn’t big enough for his antics and appetites, especially as he sets about improving his financial situation by wooing Mistress Page and Mistress Ford. Meanwhile, Mistress Page’s lovely daughter, Anne, is under romantic siege from several local admirers. Double-meanings, disguises and dirty laundry abound as the men try to get what they want, but it’s the women of Windsor who pull the strings in this story…
Originally set in Shakespeare’s native land and time, this comedy shares traditions with today’s well-loved sitcoms. With its dexterous mingling of verbal and physical humor, we’ve brought it into the era of 90’s television, bringing elements from the show Friends and many more!
Performances will be July 19th-August 3rd.
Auditions will be May 13 and 14 starting at 6 p.m. They will be held at Laguna Hills Community Center 25555 Alicia Pkwy, Laguna Hills, CA 92653.
