The Taming of the Shrew

by:  Donna Glick, Director of Education & Community Programs at 08/03/2010

On behalf of Associate Director of Education, Lynne Johnson and Education Manager, Meg Wieder, I'm writing with a special invitation to the 5th Codman Academy Shakespeare summer production. We are presenting Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew on Wednesday and Thursday, August 4th and 5th at 7:00 in the Wimberly Theatre (Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA, 527 Tremont St Boston MA). We're very excited about this year's production.

In previous years, Lynne has worked her magic to set the plays in modern day, but to celebrate the 5th year of the program, we decided to go for period costumes and set. We are also performing on two nights because of the community support that turns out for Codman productions. If we perform one night in Studio 210, to maximize space, we have little ones sitting on the floor, and still lots of standing-room-only. Also, we wanted the students to have an opportunity to learn from one performance, integrating their notes into their performances on the second night. Lynne is serving as the director and Meg is wearing a few hats as stage manager, choreographer and producer. They are doing a fantastic job. 

The cast and crew are currently working in the Wimberly on tech rehearsals. I want to thank everyone who has taken a part to make this the best summer Codman production so far. Thanks especially to Dan Ramirez, Todd Williams, Nancy Brennan, Bethany Ford, Brian Sears, Jesse Caldwell Washburn, Milosz Gassan, Amy Mattulina, Sarah Spollett, Meredith Mastroianni, Kathleen Merriam, Rebecca Curtiss, Mary O'Donnell, Meg White, Barbara Crowther (Costumer), Kris Holmes, Mary Lauve, Virginia Emerson, Sondra Katz, and Joel Turnham (lighting design). And I'm going to include a shout-out to pavilion folks who will be supporting us a great deal next week. Kat Alix, Katie Most, Sarah Williams, Mark Slavin, and Joey Riddle. 

The performance is a 90 minute version of the full play, free and open to the public. We hope that many of you will have a chance to attend. And, we're so excited to have high performing air-conditioning this year! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

  1. That's cleared my thoughts. Thanks for coutiibntrng.
  2. to sink it hard, however, can not always have the grip sinking wandering soul; how many people floating lifeless, loss of conscience in officialdom in the property, the "Man's nature is good," the true meaning strangles, devoid!

A dusty haze in the end who had dyed a healthy body? Luxurious life, we "read" to what? Abandoned villages, we "see" what was the reason? The future, can allow you and I give up luxury, away from the hubbub, like a mountain stream, as guardian, silent love, loving flowers waiting for a quiet beauty, ecological plot together better living environment? If you can, please promise me, like a river clean watch lovingly mountains, grass smoothie like that, simple quiet life, tranquil forward; natural seeding in a calm Ning Wen Wanqing, Shizumori cloud water, the equanimity, I let you freely in the blue sky breathing, totem! Spring deep place I do not know, a touch long stream flow.

People are yearning for a meteoric rise, meteoric rise in life, do you not know the way eloquent, I love you Shannon is also a supreme level. And my life is so! Even if not beautiful and seductive, but the way of atmosphere, the scenery along the way is enough to make you enjoy endless.

For me the bottom of a people, be quick degrees, can be described as lucky! Although I did not complete the last mission now, because travel is not over yet. I'm still on the road flew, I still wander the landscape. In fact, the twists and turns of life is not a kind of beauty? People say, infinite in the awesome scenery! I think this is a kind of aesthetic realm! Mediocre is not beautiful life. Only bitter, tired, it felt sweet life. I believe, at the end of life, it is when I the beautiful scenery. At that time, when is my glory. I would like to contaminated dust on the road and are willing to enjoy the scenery on the way. At least there are simple ideas, have experience in the struggle.
