On With the Shrew!
On With the Shrew!
By Bill Van Horn.

Cast: 5m., 6w. (extras.) It's five minutes before curtain time for the drama club's "cool," upbeat adaptation of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew and all is not well. The stars, Ron (Petruchio) and Terri Ann (Kate) refuse to go on stage and Bernie (Baptista) has lost his shoes. The harried director insists that the show go on. Rich, old Baptista has two daughters: "Bianca is the nicer of the two; Kate, the older, is Kate, the Shrew." Bianca likes men, but Kate doesn't! "I beg thee, pardon her, my sister, she hates all those whose sex is Mister." Crafty Petruchio wins Kate's heart and she captures his in an enthusiastic mix of Shakespearean excitement and everything-else-that-can-happen in a production. And you do get a bit of Shakespeare! Area staging. Approximate Running Time: 30 minutes.
