WaterTower Theatre Announces Cast & Creative Details for THE TAMING

The Taming kicks off WaterTower’s 26th Season and will run from October 13th - October 24th on the Terry Martin Main Stage at the Addison Theatre Centre.

In this hilarious, raucous, all-female “power-play” loosely inspired by Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, Katherine Chelsea Hartford, the current reigning Miss Georgia, has political aspirations to match her beauty pageant ambitions. All she needs to revolutionize the American government is the help of one ultra-conservative senator’s aide on the cusp of a career breakthrough, and one bleeding-heart liberal blogger who will do anything for her cause. She kidnaps Patricia, a Republican senator’s campaign manager, and Bianca, a liberal activist fighting to protect the endangered pandashrew to hold them hostage in her hotel room the night before the Miss America pageant. Why? Because she has just ditched her original Miss America platform (Sunglasses for Babies) and changed it to “Rewriting the American Constitution”. Can this unlikely trio figure out how to set aside their differences & work together to form a MORE more perfect union? How far will they go to defend themselves and their country? Southern Fried Politics, y’all!
