Bainbridge Performing Arts is pleased to announce AUDITIONS for THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR, March 4 at BPA. Embraced by audiences as one of Shakespeare’s most delightful plays, this most merry and English of comedies centers on the lovable rogue Sir John Falstaff. Hard up for money and seeking to restore his riches, he sends identical love letters to two wealthy wives. But the wooed Windsor women see through his schemes and set him up for some hilariously sweet revenge. BPA transforms the Bloedel meadow into the Windsor forest in this farce that’s not to be missed.
