THE TAMING OF THE SHREW
Thomas More University Summer Shakes
June 27-July 6
Amphitheater [Crestview Hills]
Directed by Greg Procaccino
Join us for the third annual TMU Summer Shakespeare production. Per usual, we’re putting a lot of twists on this hilarious Shakespeare classic. It’s an outdoor show located in the amphitheater beside the chapel. No reservations required because performances are free! Bring a blanket and picnic dinner, or lawn chairs to set up in the back. It’s going to be a great couple of weekends, we hope you can make it!
Baptista has a problem, and her name is Kate. His eldest daughter is so strong-willed, stubborn and downright shrewish that, despite her considerable family fortune, not a single man in Padua is willing to marry her. That is until the arrival of Petruchio, a brash and bumptious fortune-seeker who has come “to wive it wealthily in Padua.” Confident in his ability to “tame” the cantankerous Kate, he takes her to wife. Is he up for the challenge, or has Petruchio finally met his match? Who will end up taming who?
