Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre “Taming Of The Shrew”


William Shakespeare’s
The Taming of the Shrew
Adapted and directed by Chad Bradford

Grab a seat close to the stage as AST transports you back to the lively and colorful days of old world Italy, where embracing adventure, music, and above all, passion was a way of life. Through a flurry of song and spectacle, join the rambunctious and arrogant Petruchio in his quest to woo the unimpressed and headstrong “Kate the Cursed.”¬† Inspired by Italian traditions of puppetry and commedia dell’arte, our players bring the audience right into the middle of the action. So come ready to play–we can’t tell the story without you!

This production is a one-hour adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic text, specifically designed to appeal to children and adults alike! It is presented as part of Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre’s Family Shakespeare touring program.
