THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR

by William Shakespeare

How do you con a conman? You beat him at his own game, of course! That’s the lesson learned by Shakespeare’s legendary comedic cad, Sir John Falstaff, as he tries to remedy his financial woes by chasing two happily married women–using the same scam at the same time. But it’s not long before these witty wives sniff out his scheme, turning the tables on their would-be wooer and illustrating emphatically that “wives may be merry and yet honest too.”

A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life.

ROMEO AND JULIET

by William Shakespeare

One of the most beloved romantic tragedies in Shakespeare’s canon, Romeo and Juliet is the tale of the bard’s star-crossed lovers. Romeo and Juliet fall instantly in love, only to discover that they come from feuding families. In defiance of their families, amidst the animosity of friends and in concealment from their mentors, a young couple risks everything to be together. CSC is proud to present Romeo and Juliet and prove its continued relevance in the lives of young and old alike, throughout the ages.
