Taming of the Shrew

when: Aug 24, 2013 at 4:00 pm

where: Theatricum Botanicum, 1419 N. Topanga Canyon Blvd., Topanga, Ca

cost: $10-$35

ages: 6+

add to calendar: Google   iCal/Outlook

the scoop:

Is Kate a Shrew? Or is she a woman who speaks her mind? Is Petruchio a macho tough guy? Or is he someone who is strong enough in heart to see a great thing when it is in front of him.  Watch them fight, woo, and love with a glorious happy ending. There’s no more perfect setting than the leafy bower of Theatricum’s outdoor stage to experience Shakespeare.

Even kids that you might think are too young for a full Shakespeare production get a kick out of the teasing Kate and Petruchio – and surprisingly they really get some of the silly exchanges (“If I be waspish, best beware my sting”)!

Kids 6 and under are free.

This event is part of our school’s ongoing effort to bring awareness to our biodynamic farm program and to encourage community involvement by providing a place to gather and celebrate with the spirit of giving and gratitude. Highland Hall’s Biodynamic Farm program teaches children and adults about the benefits of natural cycles-planting, harvesting, and composting. "Our Farm to Table Community Feast is an opportunity to share our farm's abundance with the community," says Farm Manager Bridget Kelley. The school anticipates 250 guests in attendance including representatives from our local city offices, families and alumni from the local Waldorf Schools, and members of the Northridge, Porter Ranch, Chatsworth and surrounding communities. Our Farm to Table Community Feast is open to everyone. Guests will be treated to a delicious organic dinner served “family style” and prepared on site by Highland Hall alum Chef Reme Loosli from The Heart of Cooking and the Kaplan family from Hugo’s Restaurants. Our community meal will feature freshly harvested produce from our school’s biodynamic farm, locally sourced organic chicken, organic desserts with vegan and gluten free options. Musical entertainment will be provided by the High Strung String Band with hand-clapping, foot-stomping folk tunes from Appalachia and beyond. Early-bird tickets available now through Sept 12th on the Highland Hall website: : $25/adult $15/child.
