Everyone is welcome to join us for this FREE, all-ages performance. We encourage attendees to bring a blanket or chairs to sit on, bug spray and sunscreen to enjoy the 75-minute show.

The actors will accept donations at the performance to help support Theatre Calgary’s emerging artist program.
The Merry Wives of Windsor
Hilarity ensues in this romantic farce about the misadventures of Falstaff as he seeks to deceive the wives of two wealthy merchants. Learning of his deception, the wives seek revenge with the help of their husbands. Will they get the upper hand on Falstaff or will his plan to trick them out of their riches succeed? One of Shakespeare’s wittiest comedies, The Merry Wives of Windsor has a contemporary perspective of small-town life in early England.
