Fred Graham's past comes back with a vengeance in the musical Kiss Me Kate, which opens at Assumption High School tonight.
Kiss Me, Kate will be performed on Oct. 28, Nov. 3, 4, and 5 at 7 p.m. each day. A show on Oct. 29, meanwhile, will occur at 8 p.m. Matinee shows are to take place Oct. 30, Nov. 5, and 6 at 2 p.m. each day. All performances will happen through the Rose Theatre Company at Assumption High School, located at 2170 Tyler Lane in the Highlands section of Louisville.
Tickets for each show are $12 for adults, $7 for students, and $7 for senior citizens. Tickets can be purchased by calling the box office at 271-2636 (between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m.), online at the Assumption High School website, or, if available, at the door.
Kiss Me Kate is essentially a show within a show, featuring several people from Fred Graham's past, including his former wife, a person he's now interested in, and a person who is interested in his former wife. During a version of The Taming of the Shrew, Bill sends a bouquet of flowers to the wrong person while also being pegged for a gambling IOU.
Following Kiss Me, Kate, Assumption High School will present the BLOOM Theatre Project. The project will run in February 2012.
