THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR
Austin Scottish Rite Theater teams up with the Weird Sisters Women's Theater Collective in Shakespeare's rollicking comedy, The Merry Wives of Windsor.
Legendary performance artist Terry Galloway leads the ensemble as Falstaff in time-honored Shakespearean tradition of cross-casting: male roles are played by women, and female roles are played by men! With period music and costuming by Jennifer Rose Davis, audiences will enjoy the Bard's original words in newly reupholstered seating and beneath a faithfully restored starry ceiling!
Austin Scottish Rite Theater is an Austin gem, a fully operational modern theater thriving within a stunning historic landmark. SRT is Austins oldest theater, erected in 1871, the same year Austin became the capitol of Texas. For forty years it was a German opera house; then in 1914 it became the home of the Scottish Rite Masons who treasured the site and remain watchful tenants of the building. In 2004 the Masons created the non-profit theater organization that exists today; nestled amid the State Capitol, University of Texas, and Austins museum district, we at Scottish Rite are dedicated to building community through the arts. We provide quality shows for all ages, with enriching programming for children. For almost a century and a half, innumerable artists and events of all kinds have graced our venue, from the operas and circus trapeze acts that wowed crowds during the 19th Century to the live world music and multimedia children's programming that delight Austinites today.
