CAST-ShrewThe Cambridge American Stage Tour (CAST) will once again bring Shakespearean comedy to life at Frostburg State University with a performance of “The Taming of the Shrew” on Monday, Sept. 14, at 7:30 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center.

One of Shakespeare’s earlier plays, “The Taming of the Shrew” follows the raucous relationship between Katherina, the headstrong and temperamental daughter of a lord, and Petruchio, the fortune-seeker who marries her and takes on her contrary nature with outrageous reverse psychology. Meanwhile, Katherina’s younger sister, Bianca, who is eligible now that her older sister is married, becomes the target of several conniving suitors, each with their own invented alter egos. “The Taming of the Shrew” has become both the subject of scholarly controversy and pop cultural attention, including the film “10 Things I Hate About You,” which was based on the play.

CAST, a theatre tour established by Dame Judi Dench and composed of undergraduate students from the University of Cambridge, England, has toured in America since 2000. It aims to bring Shakespeare’s works to as wide an audience as possible in the eastern United States.

Tickets are $6 for students and $12 for general admission and will be available at the door. For more information, call 301-687-4221. To learn more about CAST productions, visit www.castcambridge.com.
