Kiss Me, Kate

Homecoming Musical:
Kiss Me, Kate

Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter
Book by Bella and Samuel Spewack

Directed by Eric Harrell
Musical Direction by Jeannette Lipford

One of the all-time great musicals sparkles with wit, romance and an unforgettable Cole Porter score including "Another Op'nin, Another Show," "Brush Up Your Shakespeare," "Why Can't You Behave" and "Too Darn Hot." Set backstage during an out-of-town tryout for a musical based on Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew, lead couple Fred Graham and Lilli Vanessi bicker and romance their way through this timeless story. And just like Shakespeare's Petruchio and Kate -- whom they play onstage in the play-within-a-play -- it's a fight to the finish in a saucy, classic battle of the sexes! This irresistible musical comedy will have you rolling in the aisles with delight!
