Shakespeare in the Park

Shakespeare in the Park  Shakespeare in the Park  Shakespeare in the Park
The Merry Wives of Windsor directed by Corey McDaniel
The boisterous rogue Sir John Falstaff has descended upon Windsor looking for love. He has set his sights on two local ladies, Mistresses Ford and Page. But these two wily wives aren’t about to be bamboozled and set about a variety of schemes to curtail the knight’s shenanigans. Throw in a jealous husband, a fair daughter with many suitors and a mind of her own, plus one over-the-top character after another, and watch Shakespeare practically invent the modern sitcom with this perennial gut-buster.

King Lear directed by George Mount
A kingdom roils as an aging monarch’s mind hangs on the precipice of madness. Children turn against their parents in a frenzied grab for power. The wisdom of fools throws the folly of the wisest into start contrast. Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy of families torn apart, the rule of law upended and the ultimate confrontation of our own mortality, is given the Wooden O experience for its 25th anniversary.
