Written by William Shakespeare between 1590 and 1592,  William tells a story of the headstrong, Katherina, who becomes the unwilling participant in a relationship with Petruchio, who is determined to "tame" Katherina with his various psychological torments.  The antics ensue with the battle of wits and obstinance that will have you laughing and waiting to see who will be most persistent.

Henry IV

Directed by Chris Shea

Written by William Shakespeare, Henry IV is a story of power, honor and rebellion.  After the death of King Richard, Henry Bolingbroke is crowned King Henry IV.  The king is not enjoying his reign and feels guilty about the removal of Richard.  He is conflicted in his conscience in whether to go to the Holy Land on crusade to pay penance or to remain at home and manage the troubles that demand his attention.
