Our 2017 Productions!

The Taming of the Shrew
The Taming of the Shrew – opens June 15
Directed by Cylan Brown

The Taming of the Shrew When rebellious Katherina stands in the way of her younger sister Bianca’s marriage, fortune hunter Petruchio is enlisted to “tame” the elder daughter, freeing a path for Bianca’s motley suitors. From their first meeting, sparks fly and the ultimate battle of the sexes ensues – leaving us to wonder, who is taming who?

Macbeth – opens June 22
Directed by Stephanie Coltrin

Macbeth “By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.” Seduced by supernatural prophecy, Macbeth and his Lady embark on an ambitious quest to win the Scottish Throne. In the aftermath of their success, we glimpse a world torn apart when a volatile, paranoid tyrant becomes King.

Be sure to check our schedule and see all of our 2017 venues.
