Sir John Falstaff is in financial difficulties. On top of that, Justice Shallow and his youthful cousin, Slender, have come to Windsor because he has conned them out of money. Falstaff decides to woo the wives of two of Windsor's leading merchants, Page, and Ford, to get money out of them. He sends his page, Robin, to each of the wives with a letter. The wives compare the letters and find that they are identical.

All are welcome. Some of us are threatened by the thought of doing Shakespeare, but those of us who have done several know that it can be a rollicking good time. The auditions will be by interview, that is, each person will talk to and read for the director individually. Please sign up for a time slot on the TNT website and come to the theater at least 10 minutes before your assigned time, Walk ins are welcome but may have to wait until a time slot opens. Here are the cast requirements, but we are not bound by traditional casting parameters.
