The Watermill Theatre presents Kiss Me, Kate.

Olivier award-winner Rebecca Trehearn (Lilli) and David Ricardo-Pearce (Fred) will be joined by a versatile cast of actor/musicians featuring Jack Benjamin (Ralph), Dan De Cruz (Doorman/Suitor), Kimmy Edwards (Lois), Andre Fabien Francis (Paul), Sheldon Greenland (Gangster 1) Robert Jackson (Gangster 2), Jay Perry (Bill), Tom Sowinski (Harrison Howell), Thomas Sutcliffe (Harry Trevor), and Chioma Uma (Hattie) in this dazzling new production of the multi award-winning Broadway hit.

Get a first look at the cast in action below!

Kiss Me Kate will be choreographed by BBC's Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse and designed by Frankie Bradshaw with Musical Supervision and Orchestration by Tom Attwood. Lighting is designed by Rory Beaton with sound designed by Tom Marshall. James Bennett is Associate Choreographer.

When ego-centric actor-manager Fred Graham and his fiery ex-wife Lilli Vanessi find themselves starring opposite each other in a musical version of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, sparks begin to fly. Meanwhile in another corner of Ford's Theatre, Baltimore, Fred's current flame and rising star Lois Lane attempts to tame her gambler boyfriend only to be thwarted by the arrival of a couple of gangsters who somehow find themselves centre stage!

Despite chaos reigning on and offstage, the show must go on! Will the cast make it to curtain up or will they literally bring the house down?
