William Shakespeare’s

The Taming of the Shrew

March 325, 2023

Previews March 1 and 2

Beloved and beautiful, Bianca has everything a girl could want—except a husband. Unfortunately for her, Bianca’s overbearing parents prevent her happily-ever-after because her headstrong, ahead-of-her-times sister, Katherine, refuses to get married first. To convince her otherwise, Bianca’s suitors enlist the help of money-hungry Petruchio to woo her sister under the promise of a hefty dowry. But Katherine’s feminist hijinks result in a series of hilarious attempts to tame the “shrew” in this unexpected reimagining.

Run Time: 2 hours 30 minutes (including intermission)

Content Advisory: This production contains Shakespearean innuendo and adult themes.
