The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare and The Tamer Tamed by John Fletcher
February 12 - 28th 2016

TAMING OF THE SHREW by William Shakespeare

A comic confrontation between the sexes.Older sister Kate matches her gentle and loveable sister Bianca in beauty, but in temperament leaves much to be desired; she is razor-tongued and strong-willed. Though Bianca has many suitors, her father will not allow her to marry until Kate has a hisband of her own. No one dares to marry the foul-tempered Kate until Petruchio arrives in Padua and tries his hand at courtship.

THE TAMER TAMED by John Fletcher

This comedic sequel and "reply" to THE TAMING OF THE SHREW by seventeenth century playwright John Fletcher switches the gender roles of the Shakespeare play: here the women seek to tame the men. Fletcher was widely celebrated in his day, collaborated with Shakespeare on at least three plays, and no doubt wrote this play to attract Shakespeare's attention. When Katherine (the "shrew" of the original) dies, Petruchio takes a second wife, Maria, who suddenly denounces her former mildness and vows to "mold him into a babe again." Join us for this sequel, and watch the women get their revenge!

PERSUASION by Jane Austen
Adaptation by Jon Jory
April 8th - 24th 2016

The Elliot family verges on financial ruin, and image-conscious patriarch Sir Walter must rent their estate to avoid bankruptcy. His daughter Anne is surprised to learn who has taken the estate: the sister of Captain Wentworth, a man whose proposal she was persuaded to refuse years before. Then, Wentworth was a poor sailor with no social standing, but he has returned a rich and eligible officer. As they are thrown into one another's company once again, Anne's affection remains despite her lack of hope for any reconciliation. But when Wentworth begins to show signs of jealousy towards one of her suitors, she must summon the courage to seek out his true feelings. This movingly romantic adaptation of Jane Austen's last novel brings a classic story of enduring love to the stage.

Singin' In The Rain has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline - the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers! In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item, but behind the scenes things aren't always as they appear on the big screen! Meanwhile, Lina's squeaky voice might be the end of her career in "talking pictures" without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her. Hilarious situations, snappy dialogue, and a hit-parade score of Hollywood standards make Singin' In The Rain the perfect entertainment for any fan of the golden age of movie musicals.
