The Taming of the Shrew

Due to the stay-at-home order in place resulting from COVID-19, we have cancelled our production of The Taming of The Shrew.

It’s post-WWII and the modest and beautiful young Bianca is the most coveted young maiden in town. But sadly, there are no wedding bells for her until a match is found for her wild, willful, “shrewish” older sister, Kate. Kate has tormented and frightened every man who dared to come her way, and Bianca and her suitors have nearly given up hope. That is, until Petruchio, a dashing and wealthy ex-military man, comes to town. When a team of Bianca’s suitors bribe Petruchio to try his hand at marrying Kate, he is eager for the challenge – and to get his hands on Kate’s considerable dowry. As maddeningly strong-willed as Kate herself, Petruchio is determined that he can “tame” this shrew.

What ensues is one of Shakespeare’s most outrageous comedies in a more modern yet still entirely fitting setting. Join us for a courtship like no other in which two misfits who have never compromised in their lives take a riotous journey towards becoming each other’s perfect match. Will Petruchio be able to tame his “shrew?” Or will Katherina tame hers? And maybe, just maybe, will love, honor, and respect, win the day?
