Tampa, Fla. – Students enrolled in the Patel Conservatory’s eight-day summer production camp, The Taming of the Shrew, will perform a modern version of the popular Shakespearean comedy on Wednesday, July 20 at 7:30 p.m. in the Straz Center’s Jaeb Theater. This is a free performance open to the public.
The performance will be an abridged workshop production of the classic, telling the story of two unmarried sisters, one lovely in temperament and physicality – and pursued by several suitors – and the older sister, difficult in manner and seemingly unmarryable. Since the younger sister cannot marry until after the older sister is wed, plots are devised and hilarity ensues.
There is still room for those in grade eight through college to enroll in this camp, which runs July 11-20. Guided by professional instructors, students will delve into the play, while honing acting technique through script analysis, voice, diction and movement. Interested students should submit a classical monologue, via video, at https://app.getacceptd.com/patelconservatory.
