Bachelor Petruchio’s search for a wife finds an unwilling participant in Kate and hilarity ensues as he sets out to ‘tame’ his headstrong wife. The play has been set in the 1950s and abridged to fit a shorter time, but has not been adapted, staying true to Shakespeare’s classic. The romantic comedy has themes of mistaken identity, role reversal, difficult choices, and, especially, being surprised by love. It will be a fun, high-energy show that includes a live, 6-person acapella group singing ‘50s’ classics, such as Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra, creating a light-hearted atmosphere for the event.
