The Taming of the Shrew
By: William Shakespeare
July 7 - August 14, 2022
Everyone loves sweet Bianca. No one can stand her sour sister Kate. So their prudish father concocts the perfect plan: no one marries Bianca until the un-wedd-able Kate is wed. Add in some inept servants, dottie old men, mistaken identities, and some toxic masculinity, and you've got Shakespeare’s classic comedy: The Taming of the Shrew. This particular production will challenge and enlighten traditional ideas of gender with nontraditional casting.
