Limited tickets available for 'Kiss Me, Kate' on Valentine's Day!

Seeking something special to do on Valentine's Day? Why not take in a musical, with proceeds benefiting local deserving children and families.

The show - Kiss Me, Kate - is a Cole Porter classic that takes its inspiration from Shakespeare. Kiss Me, Kate recounts the backstage and onstage antics of two feuding romantic couples during a touring production of The Taming of the Shrew. Sparkling with 18 classic Cole Porter songs — including "Another Op'nin', Another Show," "Wunderbar," "So in Love," "Always True to You in My Fashion," "Too Darn Hot," among many others. Kiss Me, Kate epitomizes the Broadway musical comedy at its irresistible best.

Cole Porter's most successful musical, the original production of Kiss Me, Kate opened on Broadway at the New Century Theatre on December 30, 1948. It garnered five Tony Awards in 1949, the same number the revival claimed in 2000.

Not only will YOU enjoy yourself, but your support will help the Society's St. Ignatius Conference and its work with disadvantaged families in Highland Park!

Tickets are going fast! The show will begin at 3 p.m. at the Glendale Centre Theatre.
