Oh, the places we’ll go! American Players Theatre kicks off summer with a candy-colored Dr. Seussian version of “Merry Wives of Windsor,” where Windsor is a wonderland.

In this town, instead of bird-watching, the local dads get together to practice French leaps. Everybody line dances. Even Falstaff, played by a pillow-stuffed David Daniel, gets a few spins in.

Terri McMahon’s bubbly production bodes well for the rest of the APT season, which runs in repertory through October in the Hill and Touchstone theaters in Spring Green.
