More than 35 high school students are involved in this production which is "full of life, energy and slapstick comedy," play organizers say.

The plot centers on Baptista, a wealthy widow (played by Courtney Robertson), and her two grown daughters. The younger daughter, Bianca (Alexandria Seay), is gentle-spirited and beautiful and much sought after by the noblemen of the town. The oldest daughter, Katherine (Christie Honore), has a well-established reputation for being shrewish and sharp with her tongue.

As the oldest daughter, custom dictates that Katherine must marry first. Bianca’s many suitors (Zachary Campbell, Dylan DePrati and Sam Manders) can’t afford to wait for an event that seems next to impossible, so they convince the boisterous and quick-witted Petruchio (Danny Willis) to take on the challenge of domesticating the sharp-tongued, quick-tempered “shrew.” Will Petruchio succeed in subduing Katherine’s temper and win her bountiful dowry and her love?

Other cast members include Jacob Fink, Hunter Caufmann, Nick Fazio, Victoria Hall, Kaylee Ditlefsen, Colleen Carpenter, Daniel Newell, Seth Mitchell, Jared Kneidl, Alex Law, David Burgher, Emily Funston, Sarah Isenberger, Victoria Cary, Betsy Merrikin, Niki McElhose, Selesha McKibbon, Alison Powell, Hannah Patterson, Yushin Jung, Mykaela Hatton, Erica Chapman, Genevieve King, Summer Day and Allison Cobb.

Performances are at 7 p.m. on Nov. 8, 15 and 16, with a matinee at 2 p.m. on Nov. 9.

All performances are in the school auditorium, 533 N. Sequim Ave.

Ticket prices are $8 for adults and $6 for seniors and students with an ASB card.
