Shakespeare Theatre's Next Stage Ensemble presents The Taming of the Shrew

Registration is a MUST!! MURAL patrons may register beginning July 12, space permitting.

The Shakespeare Theatre’s Next Stage Ensemble is back and ready to entertain! The production, 'Taming of the Shrew” is a loveable Shakespeare comedy that was the basis for many screen adaptations from Cole Porter’s ‘Kiss Me Kate’ to the more modern ’10 Things I Hate About You’ The main plot depicts the courtship of Petruchioand Katherina, the headstrong, obdurate shrew. Initially, Katherina is an unwilling participant in the relationship, but Petruchio tempers her with various psychological torments—the 'taming'—until she becomes a compliant and obedient bride. The subplot features a competition between the suitors of Katherina's more desirable sister, Bianca.
