“William Shakespeare's comedy, 'The Taming of the Shrew' pits the spirited Katherine against the fortune seeking Petruchio in a quintessential battle of the sexes,” said a synopsis on the Clear Creek Community Theatre web site. “Petruchio has agreed to woo and marry Katherine as a favor to his old friend Hortensio, who is in love with Bianca, Katherine's younger and more popular sister. The younger sister can only be married after the older one, but Katharine has a notorius temper and thus far no man will have her, until Petruchio comes along to 'tame' her.”
