‘Merry Wives of Windsor’ coming to Stevens Point

The Central Wisconsin Area Community Theater will present William Shakespeare’s “Merry Wives of Windsor” at 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Aug. 15-17, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 18, at Schmeeckle Reserve.

This production is set in England in the 1960s.

The comedic plot revolves around Sir John Falstaff. Listening to all the best rock music of the day, Falstaff attempts to court two married women, Mistress Ford and Mistress Page, to gain access to their husbands’ wealth.

The clever wives see through his schemes and, with the help of their husbands and townsfolk, devise a series of hilarious pranks to humiliate Falstaff.

The play will be performed at the Pankowski Friends Amphitheater, located within the Schmeeckle Reserve, 2419 Northpoint Drive, in Stevens Point.

The dinner-play features a Polynesian-inspired feast.

Tickets for the dinner-play combo on Aug. 16 cost $30 and must be ordered by Aug. 6.

General admission to the play costs $15. Seniors, veterans and children are admitted for $10.
