Kiss Me, Kate

None
8 p.m., Friday July 26

Summerstock Productions, in partnership with the University of Central Oklahoma, will present Cole Porter’s “Kiss Me, Kate” at UCO’s Mitchell Hall Theater July 19-21 and 26-28. 

The production mixes Shakespeare and the music of the great Cole Porter to create one of the most raucous, rowdy and enduring romances of all time on the stage.   “Kiss Me Kate” tells the story of the embattled Fred Graham and Lilli Vanessi, formerly husband and wife, who are now playing Petruchio and Katharine in a musical version of the Shakespearean battle of the sexes, “The Taming of the Shrew”. Thrown into the mix are an ambitious showgirl, a Broadway hoofer with a gambling problem, and singing gangsters. The show features such classic songs as “Too Darn Hot,” “Brush Up Your Shakespeare,” “Another Op’nin’, Another Show,” “So In Love” and “Always True to You (In My Fashion).”           

Organizers said they expect large crowds for “Kiss Me Kate” and encourage the community to get their tickets early.           

“This season is shaping up to be record-breaking for Summerstock. We had our biggest crowds ever for ‘The Sound of Music’ last month, with three of the performances selling out on the main floor,” said Shannon Hurleigh, Summerstock’s executive director.           

“We’re so pleased the community is supporting us in such a huge way, and our cast can’t wait to share this production with them.”

Performances are at 8 p.m. Fridays, 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays.  

Ticket prices are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors.  Tickets can be purchased online at www.summerstockok.com or by phone through the Mitchell Hall Theater box office at 405-974-3375.  Patrons can also pay by credit card, cash or check from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday at the Mitchell Hall box office located at the northeast corner of University Drive and Main Street in Edmond.   Tickets will also be available at the door. 

Summerstock season sponsors include the UCO College of Fine Arts and Design, The Kerr Foundation, Edmond Life and Leisure, The Edmond Sun, and OU Medical Center- Edmond. For more information, visit www.summerstockok.com.
