SecondStory Repertory is holding auditions for our April 2018 production of The Taming of the Shrew. Directed by Adam St. John.

Shakespeare's rowdy, screwball comedy The Taming of the Shrew follows the treacherous road to romance for a strong-willed pair of lovers who've met their ultimate match in one another. Until Kate has a husband, her sweet younger sister, Bianca, cannot marry -- but feisty, fiery-tongued Kate rejects every suitor who tries to woo her. Along comes Petruchio, willing to take a chance...and her sizable dowry. His efforts to "tame" her remain a controversial aspect of this tale, reminding us of the expected gender roles of 400 years past, and how far we have and haven't come since.

The show runs April 13-29, 2018. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8p, Sunday April 29 at 2pm. Rehearsals begin March 12, 2018.
