Shakespeare’s rowdy, screwball comedy “The Taming of the Shrew” follows the treacherous road to romance for a strong-willed pair of lovers who’ve met their ultimate match in one another.

Until Kate has a husband, her sweet younger sister, Bianca, cannot marry — but feisty, fiery-tongued Kate rejects every suitor who tries to woo her. Along comes Petruchio, willing to take a chance…and her sizable dowry.

His efforts to “tame” her remain a controversial aspect of this tale, reminding us of the expected gender roles of 400 years past, and how far we have and haven’t come since.

Show times include April 13 at 8 p.m., April 14 at 8 p.m., April 19 at 8 p.m., April 20 at 8 p.m., April 21 at 8 p.m., April 26 at 8 p.m., April 27 at 8 p.m., April 28 at 8 p.m. and April 29 at 2 p.m.
