“The Taming of the Shrew” at Studio Players

“The Taming of the Shrew”
by William Shakespeare

With THE TAMING OF THE SHREW, Shakespeare gives us the improbable courtship of the fiery-tongued Katherine by the arrogant Petruchio. But unlike Shakespeare’s other romantic comedies, the play does not stop with the wedding. Shakespeare considers the institution of marriage, the rifts between men and women, and the rough journey toward love. One of Shakespeare’s earliest and most popular comedies, THE TAMING OF THE SHREW bursts with disguise, deception and devilment. Make sure you join us for this quintessential battle-of-the-sexes comedy!

A love story for all times penned by the Bard four hundred years ago. Adapted to the 1960’s, this is the comedy that gave new meaning to the term “Battle of the Sexes”. The script has been updated by Ken Budris.
