This classic Shakespeare comedy is about love, marriage, jealousy, lies and pranking. When Sir John Falstaff woos Mistress Ford and Mistress Page at the same time, they decide to outwit and humiliate him instead. And when three suitors seek the hand of Anne Page, she must also outwit her father to marry the man she loves. Silly, funny, and eminently entertaining.

"By the pricking of our thumbs, something wicked this way comes." Join us in the darkest night for Shakespeare’s tragic tale of witches, ghosts, murder most foul, and prophesies of doom. Macbeth and his wife plot to become rulers of Scotland, but their reign falls apart into violence, paranoia and betrayal.

Directed by Jo Ann Mendelson
