The Taming of the Shrew

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Robin Frome

April 20,21,27,28,29, May 4,5,6,11,12, 2018
8:00 p.m. Friday & Saturday
2:00 p.m. Sunday Matinee

The Taming of the Shrew is one of William Shakespeare's most notable farces which depicts matchmaking in a hilariously devised plot, complete with stock characters, mistaken identities and biting wit. Sweet-tempered daddy's girl Bianca can have her pick of suitors—but not until her sister, the acid-tongued Kate, can be married off. Rising to the challenge is Petruchio, but can he match Kate jab for jab? Audience members will enjoy this modern version of a timeless classic.
