"The Merry Wives of Windsor," with Delaware Shakespeare in Rockwood Park

07:30 PM until 10:00 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.


On our Summer Festival stage, outdoors and under the stars, Delaware Shakespeare presents THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR, Shakespeare’s ridiculously bold comedy of wooing and trickery, July 12-28.

Barrymore Award-winner Krista Apple, our Beatrice in last summer’s MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, directs this raucous production with all-original music by Michael Hahn.

~ WEDNESDAYS THROUGH SATURDAYS: Gates open at 6:15pm and shows begin at 7:30pm.

~ SUNDAYS: Gates open at 4:45pm and the show starts at 6pm. Sunday nights are Family Nights! Kids 12 and under are free with paid adult admission, with additional children’s activities.

~ EVERY NIGHT: Pre-show entertainment and visits from our Wandering Bards. You bring your own blankets or chairs. Pack a picnic or buy provisions on site, with snacks and sandwiches from Janssen's Market, bottles of wine from Swigg at concessions and more TBA.

A limited number of reserved Saved Seats are available each night. Tickets for Saved Seats must be purchased in advance.

Join us for the Bard's larger-than-life comic creation Falstaff and “we shall drink down all unkindness!” in this, our 17th summer of Shakespeare.
