Syracuse – Take a light-hearted, comedic romp through the ups and downs of love, class, money and wooing in 16th century Italy as the mores of society meet the affairs of the heart. Multiple characters disguised as other people try to win the heart of fair Bianca. Only she can't get married until her older sister, Kate the "Shrew," does.
Starring the enormous talents of Kate Fahey and Ben Sheedy as Kate and Petruchio (newlyweds in real life) you will revel in their witty, slapstick and ribald humor as the rest of their world reacts to their tempestuous relationship. Considered the epitome of Shakespeare's brilliant comic observations on love Shrew has been reimagined as the musical, Kiss Me Kate, and the movie, Ten Things I Hate About You.
We provide the only in-show Kids Area for children 1O & under during the show, pre- show/intermission live local music from Kofi or John Bromka, spaces and places to spread out your family's picnic fixings, a concession stand to grab some treats and, of course, great FREE Shakespeare-In-The-Park. Special appearances by the Syracuse City Ballet and Open Hand Theater puppets.
