FLORENCE — The Aquila Theatre will perform William Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew” at 7 p.m. on Feb. 7 at the Norton Auditorium at the University of North Alabama.
The New York-based traveling acting company has made stops at UNA for the past decade, according to a university press release.
Tickets for the performance are $10 for the general public and $5 for UNA students. They can be purchased at Pegasus Records and Tapes, the Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts, Cold Water Books and the UNA bookstore. Tickets may also be purchased at the ticket office beginning at 6 p.m. the night of the performance.
University events coordinator Jayne Jackson said in the release the company is famous for its performances of Shakespearean plays removed from their time periods.
“They are purists when it comes to keeping the Shakespearean language intact, but the way they play the show is a total mystery,” Jackson said. “They come up with some utterly brilliant ways to stage the pieces they perform.”
