*The Taming of the Shrew,* outdoors Aug. 8-16
The Way-Off-Broadway Theater Group invites you to bring picnics and blankets and lounge on the grass (in an enclosed courtyard on the west side of the Gonzaga Prep campus) for a free, abridged, 90-minute outdoor performance of Shakespeare's comedy, directed by Kevin Connell, principal at G-Prep.
Four matinees over two weekends: Saturdays and Sundays at 2 pm on Aug. 8-9 and Aug. 15-16.
Connell himself will play Baptista Minola, father of Bianca and of Katherine the Shrew. The production, in modern dress, will be performed by Gonzaga University students but on the campus of Gonzaga Prep, 1224 E. Euclid Ave., just east of Nevada St. Seating will be on the grass. Park in G-Prep's west parking lot. Call Connell at 994-2788.
