As he re-learns the language of "the good life" he finds himself at odds with the girl who's passionately fighting against the ways of this close-knit bayou village. While Kate and Petruchio battle, tease and spar their way to love, they soon learn they are no match for the magic of a Louisiana night. Artistic Director Ty Hallmark’s Taming of the Shrew will work to answer Pallas’ season question – How Far Would You Go … Before you come home.
