William Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew
August 9 @ 7:00 pm - August 12 @ 9:30 pm
The Short Shakespeareans are preparing for their 44th
season, with rehearsals currently in progress for their upcoming production
of Taming of the Shrew. Over the next three weeks, the group of 55
talented young performers will be balancing rehearsals, memorization, and
comprehension of their lines, and, above all, enjoying their youth.
The Short Shakespeareans children’s theatre company was founded by
Director Sherry Schreck. Since 2013, the company has been headed by
Director Kelly Atwood as a summer project.
The play “Taming of the Shrew” by Shakespeare features a competition
among Hortensio (Finn Flavin), Gremio (Gabe Scheduler), and Lucentio
(Eli Lemmon) to win the hand of Bianca (Maya Scanlon). However, the
main focus is on Petruchio’s (Kade Devereaux), efforts to tame Katherine
(Abbey Kimmel) and make her a submissive wife. The show will run from
August 9-12 at the Riverside Playhouse in Wenatchee and tickets can be
purchased NumericaPAC.org. Huzzah!
