A “guided tour” educational version of the play
Aquila Theatre breathes fresh life into one of Shakespeare’s most challenging comedies. Founded in London and now based in New York City, Aquila has won popular, critical, and academic acclaim worldwide, performing in places as diverse as Carnegie Hall, the Ancient Stadium at Delphi, and the White House.
Set in the idyllic town of Padua, The Taming of the Shrew tells the story of the timeless battle of the sexes. This guided tour by Aquila serves not as a condensed version of the play, but rather as an educational performance meant to guide the student audience through the play’s key scenes. An actor hosts the tour by introducing the main characters and providing a narrative link between key scenes. These scenes are acted out in full costume, often with the full set and props used for an actual performance. Guided tours are one hour in length, including a Q&A session with the actors.
