Baptista has two daughters. One of them is very popular and has men, young and old, lined up to marry her. But Baptista is an old fashioned gentleman who insists that someone has to step up and marry his older daughter Katherina first. Problem is Katherina does NOT agree and refuses to play nice. Then bad boy Petruchio shows up. He is looking for a rich wife and offers to “tame” Katherina. Baptista agrees to let him try. Set in modern day, OJP’s high energy production features an all female cast playing both male and female roles. With dynamic fight choreography and no holds barred tomfoolery this production gives a fresh 21st century twist to Shakespeare’s ode to the patriarchy because, after all, shrews don’t need to be tamed.

Pericles, Prince of Tyre is a fun, bawdy, hilarious, and slightly musical odyssey for the adventurous kid in every adult! Presented in the style of an energetic pantomime, this epic tale features shipwrecks, jousts, a king whose throne is accented with the skulls of his victims, a group of drunken singing knights, Roman Goddesses, and a prince in rusty armor fighting for true love. Pericles and his daughter Marina encounter these things and more on their quest to find their way back to being a family. Written by William Shakespeare and George Wilkins (an aspiring writer and brothel owner), this play takes strange and riveting twists and turns through both the grotesque and the pure, weaving a silly yet somehow still poignant story about the meaning of hope, love, and family.
