Win a Taming of the Shrew VIP experience with Queensland Theatre

The Road Ahead is giving members the chance to win a Queensland Theatre backstage tour and enjoy the hilarious production, Taming of the Shrew.

For more than 50 years, Queensland Theatre has provided audiences with classic, contemporary, international and Australian works. 

William Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy, Taming of the Shrew, will soon be gracing the stage of the Bille Brown Theatre.

Taming of the Shrew follows the complicated romantic antics of two sisters in 1920s Italy.

The suitors are lining up to woo movie mogul Baptista’s enchanting film star daughter, Bianca. However, there’s a catch: Bianca can’t marry until her elder sister Kate is wed.

Kate is bold, independent and happy avoiding the many men who conspire to have her hand in marriage. Petruchio is a navy captain in need of a wife. The stage is set for a powerful clashing of wills. 

Director Damien Ryan reimagines Shakespeare’s classic love story by transporting it to a time when Kate is less of a problem and more of a promise of great women to come. 

This may not be the production you were expecting but it will be an irresistible night filled with glamour, romance, song and laughter.

Taming of the Shrew will warm the hearts of audiences from 8 May to 5 June 2021.
