Kiss Me, Kate

Event Date

Apr 25, 2024 to May 12, 2024

MPAC is Sizzling with Comedy Magic this Spring! Kiss Me, Kate shines as one of Broadway’s most sparkling achievements. This is the winner of the first-ever Tony Award for Best Musical, alive with onstage romance, backstage passion, comedy high and low, a hilarious dash of Shakespeare’s Shrew, and the songwriting genius of Cole Porter at his stylish, sexy, sophisticated best, including “Too Darn Hot,” “So In Love” and “Always True To You In My Fashion.” Once again, Manatee Players catapults you to musical comedy heaven with Kiss Me, Kate. An egotistical actor and producer named Fred Graham and his ex-wife, Lili Vanessi, are playing Petruchio and Kate in a production of “Taming of the Shrew.” In both the real world and in the play, they bicker and romance in a “battle of the sexes.” Producing Artistic Director Rick Kerby directs and choreographs this production. Rated PG.
