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?

Sept. 20-30
[Crestview Hills]

In A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS, Robert Bolt shares an often-overlooked point of view on the divorce of King Henry VIII: that of the average person. When the King realizes that his Queen, Katherine of Aragon, cannot produce an heir to his throne, he sets out to procure a divorce. But as a man of his word and Lord Chancellor of England, Sir Thomas More greatly opposes the proposal. Will he defend his moral values? Or will he give in to the unholy actions of the king? Find out in this historical tale of ambition, integrity, and principles—told from the Common Man’s perspective.

Outdoor Amphitheater [Crestview Hills]

Directed by Greg Procaccino

Macbeth, a brave Scottish general, receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders the king and takes the throne for himself. His reign is racked with guilt and paranoia, and he soon becomes a tyrannical ruler as he is forced to commit more and more murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion. The bloodbath swiftly takes Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into realms of arrogance, madness, and death.
