The classic Shakespeare comedy tells the story of Baptista Minola and his two daughters, Bianca and Katherine. Bianca is sweet, while Katherine is considered a shrew. When Baptista decides he won't let the Bianca get married until he marries off Katherine, Bianca's many suitors hatch a plan to find a suitor for the shrew.
Directed by Mat Young, the play will be set in the early 1960s. The show is produced by Carin Zakes and Peter Green, and features a multi-generational cast including Julie Thaxter-Gourlay of Port Chester as Katherine, Larry Reina of Port Chester as Baptista, Kathleen Nicholas of Rye as Bianca and Kevin Patrick McGuire of Danbury as Petruchio. In keeping with the "Mad Men" theme, there will be a 1960s-style trivia game show during intermission, where audience members can win prizes.
Performances will be held on Friday in Rye Town Park, Saturday in Crawford Park in Rye Brook, Sunday in Bedford Village Memorial Park, Aug. 8 and 9 in Lyon Park in Port Chester and Aug. 10 in Pine Ridge Park in Rye Brook. All performances will start at 5:45 p.m. Suggested donations are $20 for the general public and $15 for seniors and children under 12. Audience members should bring their own lawn chairs and blankets.
