South Texas College (STC) Theatre kicks off season with adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew

South Texas College (STC) Theatre kicks off its 10th anniversary season with William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, adapted by Robert De Hoyos.

The production will run from Oct. 17-19 at 7:30 p.m., and will include a matinee at 2 p.m. on Oct. 20. Performances will take place at STC’s Cooper Center for Communication Arts Black Box Studio Theatre at 3201 W. Pecan Blvd. in McAllen.

In Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, Lucentio loves Bianca, but cannot court her until her older sister Katherina marries. The eccentric Petruccio marries the reluctant Katherina and uses a number of tactics to make her an obedient wife. In De Hoyos’ adaptation, power and gender are addressed in a manner which bears relevance.

General admission tickets cost $5. Tickets can be purchased one hour before the performance at the box office, or in advance online at southtexascollege.edu/go/theatre.
