Harford Community College’s Actors Guild Presents The Taming

11 January 2023

The Actors Guild of Harford Community College will present The Taming by Lauren Gunderson on Fridays and Saturdays, February 10 & 11 and 17 & 18 at 8 PM and Sundays, February 12 and 19 at 3 PM in the Blackbox Theater located in Joppa Hall at Harford Community College.

Tweetering, pandashrews, and undying giddiness for James Madison -- what else could you expect to find at a Miss America pageant? In this hilarious, raucous, all-female “power-play” inspired by Shakespeare’s Shrew, contestant Katherine 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. Well, that and a semi-historically-accurate ether trip. Here’s lookin’ at you, America.

The show is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

Tickets are $8-12. Purchase tickets here. Harford Community College is committed to promoting the full participation of all individuals with disabilities at the event. For disability-related accommodations, call 443.412.2211 two weeks in advance.
