The Mercer Museum & Fonthill Castle and the ActorsNET of Bucks County present two nights of a special modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s “The Merry Wives of Windsor.”

1963. Welcome to the Windsor Hotel Resort in South Fallsburg, NY. Shakespeare’s bright and breezy comedy of sexual jealousy, where clever women are forced to put up with dull, egocentric men, is given a 1960s sitcom reboot. Delight as the fun plays out against a landscape of summer resort leisure and that new “dirty dancing” music trend.

This special production by the most famous playwright in the English language is staged in the spectacular outdoor setting of Fonthill Castle.

This event is rain or shine, except in the case of hazardous weather. Tickets are 100% non-refundable and non-transferable, so please plan accordingly.

Parking available on-site. Enter at Swamp Road (Rt. 313) entrance, between North Street and East Court Street, and follow parking signs.

For preferred seating, the Mercer Museum & Fonthill Castle will provide seating. For lawn seating, you provide your own blanket.


There are 44 rooms in Fonthill including 10 bathrooms, 5 bedrooms and 18 fireplaces.
