    Kiss Me Kate

    October 27-29, 31 - November 1- 5, 2017
    Constans Theatre
    Based on the book writing by Samuel and Bella Spewack, and music and lyrics by Cole Porter
    Directed by Tony Mata with musical direction by Tony Offerle

    Kiss Me Kate blends the book writing of Samuel and Bella Spewack with the incomparable music and lyrics of Cole Porter to bring about a theatrical play-within-a-play scenario based on William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. In this celebration of the 1940’s American musical, a company of travelling actors’ off-stage antics begin to creep into their on-stage performances. Directed by Tony Mata with musical direction by Tony Offerle, this classic musical will take place in Constans Theatre. A special pre-show reception commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Constans Theatre is planned for November 4, 2017.
