The Taming Of The Shrew

 

Our Spring Production is the William Shakespeare Classic!

“The Taming of the Shrew” remains one of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies, loved by audiences around the world. 

The main plot depicts the courtship of Petruchio (portrayed by Mike Blakemore of Brunswick) and the headstrong Katherina (portrayed by Jeanette Wolfarth of Portland). The subplot features a competition between the suitors of Katherina's younger sister, Bianca (portrayed by Letia Fowlie of Bath), who is seen as the "ideal" woman. 

“The story of Kate and Petruchio has entertained and captivated us for centuries because it is so familiar to us all,” said John Willey who directs this production. “We recognize ourselves in the power struggles, the small victories and defeats, the resulting new balances as we make our own way through relationships in our own lives.”

Shakespeare provides audiences with great merriment and a peek at how humans, ‘do the dance of love’ to find a working harmony with our partners, parents and society at large. Taming of the Shrew questions what defines happiness and a successful partnership. 

The Taming of the Shrew is a Chocolate Church Arts Center production in partnership with Shakespeare on the Kennebec.
