Showings usually begin at 7 p.m. with matinee shows also available.

The production is specially adapted to children ages 2-11 and will last about an hour. It will also be presented as a circus act with clowns, slapsticks and puppets.

The play tells the story of Petruchio, who is trying to win the love of Kate, a bad-tempered and sharped-tonged woman. The audience members will judge whether Petruchio’s methods are the best way to win over Kate. The printed program will also include children's games and puzzles related to the play.

The play is directed by David Morgan from a script adapted by Teresa Dayley Love, with Allison Black as stage manager. Scenery was designed by Janet Swenson with costumes designed by Deanne Dewitt.
