'Merry Wives of Windsor' at Catawba

By Sydney Berk
For The Salisbury Post
Catawba College invites audiences to discover one of William Shakespeare’s most hilarious comedies. Follow the antics of one of theater’s mostloved fools, Falstaff, as he is tricked by two witty wives.
“The Merry Wives of Windsor” will be performed April 5 and 6 at 6:55 p.m. and April 7, 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m.
Directed by Professor Dayna Anderson, it’s the story of a fat knight who has plans to seduce two lovely ladies in order to get close to their husbands’ very deep pockets.
Little does he know, the quick-witted women quickly devise a plan of their own to teach Falstaff a lesson.
This classic play is peppered with jealous husbands, feuding couples and love triangles.
Director Anderson suggests that right now, with “the world coming apart at the seams,” everyone needs a little comedy in their lives.”
The Merry Wives acting company is made up of Aaron Alderman of Durham, proud to represent the men as Falstaff, and 19 women, including Bailey Buckner, Jamie Caputo, Jodye Carroll, Carrie Foster, Bristol Glass, Katie Haeuser, Carrie Harris, Katie Hopkins, Katie Johnson, Yolanda McClure, Mary Alice Nichols, Annabelle Prince, Kara Procell, Collette Riddle, Donna Steele, Katherine Tierney, Robin Tynes and Mackenzie Westbrook.
Tickets for Catawba College’s production of “The Merry Wives of Windsor” are $10 for adults and $8 for senior citizens and non-Catawba students. Group discounts are available. For more details, contact the Catawba College Theatre Box Office at (704) 637-4481, or buy tickets online at www.showtix4u.com.
Following the Friday, April 8, performance, audience members are invited to a reception in Peeler Crystal Lounge honoring the college’s Elizabethan Scholar, Dr. Bethany Sinnott. Dr. Sinnott will retire from Catawba at the end of this academic year after almost 42 years of service to the institution.
