Drama Workshop Performance of The Taming of the Shrew

Friday, June 24 at 7pm and Saturday, June 25th at 3pm

DaySpring's Black Box Theatre 

William Shakespeare's lively farce, filled with spunk and wit, takes the DaySpring stage in this production of The Taming of the Shrew. Every eligible bachelor in Padua longs to woo the beauteous Bianca, but she cannot be courted until her older sister, the brawling wildcat Katherine, is wed. The swaggering Petruchio is willing to do just that if the price is right. This show will be full of delightful banter, challenging physicality, music and dancing.

This show is the culmination of DaySpring's Summer Drama workshop for students ages 11 & up. The students attend a 2 week workshop which includes classes in voice, movement, acting and Commedia Del Arte technique as well as rehearsals for performances. There will be 2 shows in DaySpring own NEW black box theatre. With strolling musicians, street performers and wedding dances, this show is sure to be a feast for the senses.

Tickets available online www.daysprinarts.eventbrite.com, $12 Adults, $8 Children (ages 12 & under) +online fees apply.
