The Baldwin Players put on their version of the "Taming of Shrew" by William Shakespeare on Oct. 31 through Nov. 2 in Howard Auditorium. The Baldwin players had no problem packing the auditorium with this famous work of art.
In the "Taming of the Shrew," the main character Petruchio wants to wed the strong willed and stubborn Katrina, but she is not going to go easily. There are several other main characters much more interested in her more desirable sister, Bianca.
The play was exciting and enjoyable. Brian Ray, the director of the play, did a very good job of displaying one of Shakespeare’s greats roles. The actor scheduled to play Petruchio was unable to attend, so the position of Petruchio was actually played by the director of the play.
Even though he had to read his lines off the script, he played the part very well and still had the audience members at the edge of their seats.
I really enjoyed the play and if any one has not yet seen the Baldwin Players in action I would encourage them to at least see one of their plays. They are always exciting and very entertaining.
