The Taming of the Shrew

 

With a sharp tongue and a volcanic temper, the headstrong Kate bows down to no man. But then a dubious suitor named Petruchio swaggers out of the woods and into the trailer park with a mischievous plan to reach her guarded heart. Played out in a forgotten corner of rural America, their comic courtship is a no-holds-barred battle of the sexes that results in a love and understanding that neither one imagined.

The Comedy of Errors

 

Two sets of long lost twins unknowingly cross paths and set the stage for an evening of mistaken identity, mixed up confusion, and mayhem! This comic master piece is full of slapstick and sight gags, puns and pratfalls. Keeping track of which twin is which is only half the fun, as Shakespeare also stacks the deck with some of his most outrageous characters, including a jealous wife, a seductive courtesan, a hapless old man seeking his sons, a zany conjurer attempting an exorcism, and even a nun who’s not all she seems to be!
