Don Quixote: idealistic knight, fighter of windmills, champion of chivalry and justice, and source of infinite laughter.

“Don Quixote de la Merced” reimagines the adventures of this famous knight errant with his trusty squire Sancho Panza in modern day Merced. Filming was done in May of this year in back yards, parks, on Main Street, at the Farmers Market, at a local pub, in the foothills, and at the Merced River. 

Filled with moments of humor, defeat, triumph, and tragedy, Don Quixote de la Merced is being presented as a full feature film for the first time as Merced Shakes' first live gathering in much too long.  Join us to celebrate, laugh, and catch up on all things Shakespeare at this one-time-only presentation. 

Adapted from Cervantes' classic novel by Angel Nunez and directed by William Wolfgang and Angel Nunez, it features local actors performing in both Spanish and English with subtitles.  

Don Quixote de la Merced - The Movie will be shown on Saturday, November 13, at 7:30 pm at the MAC at 645 W. Main Street in downtown Merced. Bring vaccination pass and be prepared to stay masked for the duration. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $ 5 – 15 (on a sliding scale, decided by the patron) with either cash or charge. There will be a Q&A session with cast and crew members after the showing. For more info check out our Facebook page or call 209 723-3265.
