More Information


The Taming of the Shrew exploits the battle of the sexes with both “tamer” and “tamed” receiving an education in love and marriage and understanding. Politically incorrect and packed with romantic and farcical comedy, Shrew is a summer salve for life’s trials and tribulations.

Directed by Carl Reggiardo

David Denman (Roy on TV’s “The Office”) returns to SOC to play the macho Petruchio and SOC veteran Katie A. Keane returns to play the fiery Kate.
