Enjoy the verbal sparring and spirited courtship of Katharina and Petruchio as Four County Players closes its 40th anniversary season with Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. Comedy ensues when a determined suitor (Martyn Kyle) pursues a strong-willed and resistant maiden (a fiery Mendy St. Ours) and the couple engages in a battle of wills, learning to tolerate each other and, eventually, to love.

Through 5/19  $12-16, 8pm (2:30pm on Sundays). All Fridays are half-price. Four County Players Main Stage, 5256 Governor Barbour St., Barboursville. (540) 832-5355.
