Kiss Me, Kate!

Cole Porter, Bella Spewack and Sam Spewack

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

Kiss me, Kate! is a wonderfully jazzy, incomprehensibly funny and soul-satisfying musical set in Baltimore in 1948.

For a theatre company who happen to be putting on Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, a similar story unfolds among the cast and crew. Throw in gangsters, comedic routines, impressive dance numbers and a healthy dose of mistaken identity and you get the wonder that is Kiss Me, Kate!

It includes the hits Brush Up Your Shakespeare, Too Darn Hot and Another Op’nin, Another Show, as well as the lesser-known gems I Hate Men and Tom, Dick, or Harry.

This production is recommended for people of all ages. 

This amateur production is presented by an arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. www.concordtheatricals.co.uk

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
