Hilhi presents 'Taming,' y'all

Hillsboro High School’s Drama Department will present a southern twist on William Shakespeare’s “Taming of the Shrew” beginning this weekend.

The classic play is set in modern day Texas and director John Monteverde plays up the farcical elements with plenty of silly slapstick humor, plus country line dancing, live music and lots of fist fights.Photo Credit: COURTESY PHOTO - Jackson Bayer plays Petruchio and Melory Mirashrafi plays Kate in Hillsboro High Schools production of Taming of the Shrew.

The play opens Friday, Feb. 6 and runs Feb. 7, 12, 13 and 14 at 7:30 p.m. at Hilhi, 3285 S.E. Rood Bridge Road.

“Working on Shakespeare with teens is one of my passions,” Monteverde said. “I love the raw energy of his plays. This is a very physical production.

“The comedy is wild and athletic, the pace never lets up and the entire cast runs, jumps and knocks each other about with youthful enthusiasm.”

General admission tickets are $10.

Cast members are: Melory Mirashrafi, Rachel Mohlman, Alex Satterlee, Isaac Mitzel, Nat Richman, Simon Palinsky, Brandon Maurer, Carleena Atkin, Daniel Taylor, Kenya Sanabria, Laurel Stugart, Jackson Bayer, Lauren Goldfarb, Steve Radke, Hanna Brumley, Jolie Lowe, Chun-Yang Wang, Steve Ruiz, Peter Fillo, Bethel Amare and Wolfgang Stolte.

Stage crew includes: Rochelle Lowe, Victoria Cozzetto, Jonathan Requeno, Emily Trimble, Darrel Miller, Erin Fish and Seira French.
