“TAMING OF THE SHREW” OPENS @ BALTIMORE SHAKESPEARE FACTORY THIS FRIDAY NIGHT!

Opening Friday...

Baltimore Shakespeare Factory presents

The Taming of the Shrew

WHEN: November 6-22, Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 4pm; 
Musical entertainment begins 30 minutes before showtime
WHERE:
The Great Hall Theatre at St. Mary's, 3900 Roland Ave. (in Hampden), Baltimore

"The Taming of the Shrew" tells the story of the unconventional romance between a lusty fortune-hunter and a feisty, sharp-tongued daughter of privilege. Every man in Padua wants to marry the beautiful Bianca, but her father will not allow her to wed until his eldest daughter, Katherina, has a husband. Too bad every man in Padua is terrified of her... that is, until Petruchio comes to town. BSF's 2015 season closes with a bang as the two unlikely lovers battle their way to happily ever after.

This is also our Actor Ensemble Experiment. We spend only five days rehearsing before opening night Friday—and if we screw up, we want the audience to throw tomatoes (yes, literally... you can rent foam tomatoes at the box office). We're proud to be a part of Charm City Fringe Festival again this year.

TICKETS: $20 – Adults, $15 - Students/Teachers/Artists/Seniors, Free Admission for Children Grade 5 and below
