The Taming of the Shrew (Condensed)

January 17, 2019 - January 20, 2019
2018-2019 Season

This season we performe a hilarious, but seriously abridged version of Shakespeare's classic "The Taming of the Shrew."

The 45 minute play preserved the original language along with all the major plot turns, but condensed it down to a one-act play and is a perfect introduction to the Bard for participant and audience member alike.

 January 15-16 are morning school performances.

The general public productions are January 17-20.
