A large cast of 70 talented teenagers will take to the stage for this musical version of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, with music and lyrics by Cole Porter. The story involves the conflict on and off-stage between Fred Graham (Shane O’Sullivan), the show’s director, producer, and star, and the leading lady, his ex-wife Lilli Vanessi (Ellie Mackey).

The show is directed and produced by Jennifer Williams, with musical direction from Siobhan Alley and Olga Gannon. Tickets are now on sale in both schools for €10.
