JRT Announces Their First Production of 2017, Kiss Me Kate.
The Jonesborough Repertory Theatre invites you to see the hilarious musical Kiss Me Kate between January 27th and February 12th at the theatre located at 125½ West Main Street in Jonesborough.
Kiss Me Kate is a play within a play, where the on-stage performances of the actors— who are doing Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew—are greatly affected and complicated by their off-stage lives. Between gambling debts, flowers delivered to the wrong person, and romantic links run amok, we have a crazy fun show that will keep you at the edge of your seat. Enjoy well-known songs such as “Another Op’nin’, Another Show,” “I Hate Men,” and “Too Darn Hot” by some of JRT’s finest actors, singers and dancers.
Kiss Me Kate—a musical by Cole Porter—is based on the book by Sam and Bella Spewack, and it’s directed by Jennifer Ross and choreographed by Heather Allen.
Included in the cast are Brittany Whitson as Lillie, Joe Gumina as Fred, Heather Allen as Lois Lane, and Christopher Ward as Bill Calhoun.
Shows will run on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m, and Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $16 general admission, $14 for students and seniors. To purchase tickets, call the Historic Jonesborough Visitors Center at 423.753.1010 or go online to www.jonesboroughtheatre.com.
