Ophelia's Jump to Present MACBETH & THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR, 7/17-27

Continuing an exciting and thought-provoking second season, Ophelia's Jump Productions will open THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR and MACBETH. The productions, directed respectively by Founding Artistic Director/CEO Beatrice Casagran and Associate Artistic Director Kevin Slay, will run July 17-27, 2014 at the Sontag Greek Theater in Claremont, in cooperation with The Pomona College Department of Theatre and Dance. Tickets are available at opheliasjump.org, or at the Pomona College box office.

An hilarious, tongue-in-cheek sex farce balances a cutthroat tale of corruptive power as these two shows open in Pomona College's beautiful Greek style amphitheater. The productions will be performed in repertory, alternating each night with the same cast. Set in the late 1960's, Shakespeare's works are given a fresh, colorful perspective.

Two married women (and their money) are pursued by the rotund and rambunctious Falstaff. But the ladies see right through his plots, and form a few of their own. Mischief and hysteria follow, with lovers and lechers chasing after what they truly desire.

Macbeth, a Scottish king, is spurred by a visit from three sinister but seductive women, who hail him as the highest ruler in the country, a title he knows he does not hold-yet. Shamelessly pressed by his power-hungry wife, Macbeth leaves a bloody path in his wake as he charges for the throne, leaving the question asked: what, or who, is worth the price of power?

Tragedy and comedy blend under the stars with Ophelia's Jump this summer, celebrating one of the greatest playwrights in the English-speaking canon in a whole new light. We invite you to bring food and libations to enjoy under the stars as you watch. Come a few hours early for a special event on Saturdays & Sundays, featuring local artisans and entertainment.

• Opening: Thursday, July 17 (THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR) & Friday July 18 (MACBETH) 2014
• Regular Run: July 17-July 27, 2014
