St. John Bosco to perform Spring Play this weekend
High school drama club at St. John Bosco Academy are preparing for their upcoming performance of the play "Take the Shrew. Take two."
Show times are this week, April 27th-29th at 7:00 pm and a Saturday matinee at 2:00. The play will be held inside the school gym at 122 Substation Rd in Cottonwood. Taking off from the original play, "Take the Shrew, Take Two" expands Shakespeare's play-within-a-play motif and imagines Taming of the Shrew as a story invented by explorers of an old run-down 1920's mansion. The Roaring 20's come alive as a sweet girl's covert suitors attempt to circumvent her father's eccentric rule that his fiery older daughter must be married before his younger can date. Hijinks ensue as suitor rivalry and plots to marry off the firebrand abound. Have they actually found a man canny enough to tame the shrew? Or will their plan backfire? Meanwhile, the father and his brother are up to something mysterious in the basement and a young, eager, undercover reporter is determined to find out what.
Director Kim Frei with Assistant Directors Michael Rehder and Tara Stubbers along with the high school students invite you to the show! Admission is by donation only. Concessions are available to purchase.
