Shakespeare in the Park presents ‘The Merry Wives of Windsor’ Friday, July 13


Free performance will take place at 7PM  in Central Park

The Midsummer Theatre Troupe will perform William Shakespeare’s “The Merry Wives of Windsor” at 7PM on Fri., July 13, in Naperville’s Central Park.

“We are pleased to bring back the Midsummer Theatre Troupe to Central Park this year,” said Park District Program Manager Betty Roth.  “The actors know how to communicate Shakespeare’s humor in a way that engages kids and people of all ages.”

“The Merry Wives of Windsor” tells the story of Sir John Falstaff, who writes letters to two ladies who then plan a practical joke to teach him a lesson.

In the spirit of Ravinia, patrons can bring a picnic supper or just enjoy the beautiful outdoor setting of Central Park. Bench seating is provided, and there is plenty of room for those who want to bring their own chairs or blankets. Please note that alcohol and glass containers are not permitted in the park.

Central Park is located at 104 E. Benton Ave.  in downtown Naperville.
