D.G Menchetti Young Shakespeare Program
Since 2002 Young Shakespeare has entertained over 70,000 children and their families around the region. Join us this summer as we present an hour- long adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew specifically designed for children and adults alike!
Join the cast of the D.G. Menchetti Young Shakespeare Program as the cast of local professional actors team up with some of the area’s middle and high school students to present William Shakespeare’s hilarious comedy, The Taming of the Shrew.
Baptista Minola has two daughters that he wants to find husbands for. His younger daughter, Bianca, is sweet and quiet. His older daughter, Katharina, is known for being wild and angry, and Baptista is worried no one will marry her. To try and solve his problem, Baptista announces that Bianca cannot get married until Katharina gets married.
Lucentio, a young man from out of town, sees Bianca and falls in love at first sight and it turns out she likes him too! Petruchio has heard about Katharina and decides that he wants to marry her and he thinks he will be able to “tame” her wild behavior. However, when they meet, Katharina does not like Petruchio at all. Will Katharina and Petruchio ever learn to get along? Come to The Taming of the Shrew to find out!
