Sir John Falstaff, in Windsor and short of money, decides to woo Mistress Ford and Mistress Page, prosperous citizens’ wives, and sends identical letters to them.

This leads to a side-splitting evening filled with mischief, schemes, a buck basket, a wood full of fairies and one pair of horns in “The Merry Wives of Windsor.”

Evening performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and 6:30 p.m. Sundays. Daytime performances will be 10 a.m. most Tuesdays and Wednesdays. 

The show will run from Jan. 2 to Feb. 1.

Ticket prices range from $15 to $36, depending on day and seat. Students and educator receive $5 off except in the balcony on Thursdays. Military, seniors and groups of 10 or more will receive a $3 discount except in the balcony on Thursdays.

Seating is done on a “first come, first served” basis within each designated section.
