The Taming by Lauren Gunderson

"Tweetering, pandashrews, and undying giddiness for James Madison -- what else could you expect to find at a Miss America pageant? In this hilarious, raucous, all-female "power-play" inspired by Shakespeare's Shrew, contestant Katherine has political aspirations to match her beauty pageant ambitions. All she needs to revolutionize the American government is the help of one ultra-conservative senator's aide on the cusp of a career breakthrough, and one bleeding-heart liberal blogger who will do anything for her cause. Well, that and a semi-historically-accurate ether trip. Here's lookin' at you, America." 

The play will feature: Jennifer Fitzery, Jessica Leigh Tokarski, Emily Yancey, and Stefanie Warnick and will be directed by Lara D. Haberberger.

Performances are 10/19/18 - 11/3/18, Fridays and Saturdays @ 8:00pm.
