Brampton's Own Shakespeare Show

Taming of the Shrew (Taming of the Dude)

July 18 to August 3, 2024

Directed by Yvonne Dhanoa

Brampton’s Own Shakespeare Show returns for its third season touring TAMING OF THE SHREW DUDE to three outdoor stages around Brampton this summer! Grab a chair, a blanket, pack a picnic, and pick the park nearest you to settle in and enjoy this comedic battle of the sexes. 

 

Louie the Goat Productions and a cast of homegrown actors brings you a gender bending spin on William Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew. In this version, Noblewoman Bethany has 2 sons, Nathaniel and Benjamin; 1 nasty and 1 sweet. The nasty Nathaniel is married off to Penelope, a clever woman who uses some questionable tactics to tame this feisty man into becoming the “perfect husband”. With lots of laughs and a tongue-in-cheek commentary on gender-norms, this is a PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN summer theatre experience for the whole family!

Produced by Louie the Goat Productions*, Co-Presented by  Brampton On Stage.

Thursdays @ Chinguacousy: July 18, 25 & August 1

Fridays @ Mount Pleasant: July 19, 26 & August 2

Saturdays @ Ken Whillan's: July 20, 27 & August 3
