Two-Show Packages: Select tickets to both of our mainstage productions and save! Your package discount will be applied at check-out.

The only thing that stands between Bianca and a bevy of eligible suitors is her quick-tempered, elder sister Katherina. That is until fortune-hunting Petruchio takes up the challenge to “tame” Kate and make her his wife. A madcap marriage and much mayhem ensues in a beguiling battle of wits and wills between the sexes which ultimately reveals an unlikely romance. Can love tame a shrewish heart and surprise an unbridled bachelor?

Back by popular demand, for this production, we again will transform our Warren Edward Trepp Stage into an Elizabethan theater, including SEATING SECTIONS ON STAGE – surrounding the playing area and creating an immersive experience for audiences! Onstage seats afford a variety of seating experiences which include padded benches with backs, table/chair seats and balcony tier seats. All onstage seating is assigned.
