The Taming of the Shrew, 21st to 22nd June, 19:30
MadCap Theatre Productions bring to life one of Shakespeare’s finest comedies, The Taming of the Shrew. The Wealthy Baptisa is determined that his younger daughter, Bianca, is not to be married before the elder; the only problem being that no one in Padua is willing to take on his ‘out-spoken’ elder daughter, Katherina. This leaves Bianca’s many suitors only one choice, while using any means possible to get near the object of their affection, they must find a man crazy enough to accept the challenge of ‘Taming the Shrew’. Watch as typical Shakespearean mayhem ensues with misleading disguises, witty banter and the inevitable rocky road to true love! Including music, song, dance and a lot of physical theatre- it will be a fantastic evening’s entertainment.
