Free KY Shakespeare in the (Jefferson County, KY) Libraries Tour

Thanks to the generosity of Louisville Metro Government, KY Shakespeare offer free one-hour performances of The Taming of the Shrew at your local library branch. It’s a fun and free opportunity for families throughout the city to experience this creative take on Shakespeare’s comedy – incorporating audience participation, puppetry, and imagination, with two of our professional actors.

Two of Shakespeare’s strongest characters square off in a battle of wits as the scheming Petruchio faces the headstrong Kate. Shakespeare’s classic comedy highlights relationship dynamics, self-respect, character and identifying bullying behavior alongside healthier alternatives. During the interactive performance the actors will engage with audience members and have the opportunity for post-performance discussion as well. The educational performance highlights conflict resolution, healthy relationships, self-esteem, self-respect, and anti-bullying messages. The program is suitable for all ages. Director of Education Kyle Ware directs production.
