Summer Shakespeare Tauranga is proud to bring you their next annual outdoor production of The 'Taming of the Shrew', at the beautiful Historic Village, Tauranga. Directed by local actress and playwright, Gin Mabey.

About The Taming of the Shrew:

The main plot depicts the courtship of Petruchio and Katherina, the headstrong, obdurate shrew. Initially, Katherina is an unwilling participant in the relationship; however, Petruchio "tames" her with various psychological torments, such as keeping her from eating and drinking, until she becomes a desirable, compliant, and obedient bride. The subplot features a competition between the suitors of Katherina's younger sister, Bianca, who is seen as the "ideal" woman.

Grandstand and street-level seating will be provided. All seating is general admission, and the seating area will be open from 7pm. Patrons are advised to bring jackets and/or blankets for warmth, as it can get a little cool later in the evening. Street-level seats will be reserved for elderly or disabled persons. Please arrive early and advise the Front of House staff of your requirements.

Limited door sales will be available for all performances. EFTPOS available.

Hot food and coffee will be available for purchase, and there is an outdoor bar selling beverages before the performance and during interval. As this event is licensed, we are unable to permit alcohol to be brought into the bar and performance areas within The Historic Village.

If a performance needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather, ticket holders will be advised via email and a notice posted on the Facebook Page: Summer Shakespeare Tauranga. Your ticket(s) will be valid for any remaining show in the season.
