The Taming of the Shrew

VENUE:           Dixon Gallery & Gardens/Winegardner Auditorium

What students and teachers are saying about TSC's Student Matinees:

I don't believe there could be any performing arts company that could satisfy my love for the arts any better than the Tennessee Shakespeare Company.
- Caitlyn Knot, 11th Grade, Middle College High School
My students were on the edge of their seats. I enjoyed watching them as much as I enjoyed watching the performers! It is imperative that students are given good first experiences with Shakespeare. So often they are turned off by having to simply read the plays, or they see less than stellar performances. My students were entranced, delighted, and asking for more.
- Ann Lane Neal, Director of Theatre Arts, St. Agnes Academy
Many of my students, who had expressed trepidation in understanding Shakespeare, were surprised to find that they not only understood but also enjoyed the play.
- Janelle Phipps, English Teacher, Harding Academy
I don't want my comments to seem hyperbolic—but my students and I feel that this was the richest literary experience we have ever had.
- Julia Goodwin, English Teacher, Bartlett HS
