The Taming of the Shrew

2012-2013 SEASON


The Taming of the Shrew (2013)

Shakespeare's battle of the sexes concerns Petruchio's courtship of Katherina. The man from Verona does not have an easy task ahead of him. He tries many ways to tame her, however she has her own take on the romance. Come and experience this romantic comedy classic that has challenged and entertained audiences for centuries. See the would-be lovers battle it out, because as we know, love is a battlefield.

"Shrew is fast, funny, naughty, surprising and physical--not a bit stodgy or distant. If we've done our job in Chatham this March, audiences will feel like they are part of the action--not viewing it from afar", declares director, Jen Plants.
