Katherine (Emily Gail Howell) tortures her sister Bianca (Becca Hardy-Pino) for information about her suitors, but is flaunted by her mother, Baptista (Barbara Macko). Soon arrive a parade of suitors and their hired scholars. Petruchio (Paul McLain) offers a disguised Hortensio (Rob Epstein). Gremio (Sean Anderson) presents Cambio (Jason Meinhardt). And Tranio (Chris Davis), accompanied by Biondella (Brandy Meinhardt), offers a stack of books and a lute. These gifts go over with varying degrees of success. Or lack thereof.
