Kissing in Casino
In the 1948 Broadway production and in the 1953 film of Cole Porters Kiss Me Kate the raunchier bits were prudishly cut. But in this new production by Co-Opera the excitement has been put back in, becoming a more faithful rendition of Cole Porters musical and more in tune with Shakespeares play The Taming of the Shrew, around which it is based.
Kiss Me Kate focuses on a theatre company putting on a production of The Taming of the Shrew.
Choreographer, Nick Carroll, has interpreted a wide range of music which includes waltz, swing, soft-shoe, jazz and even pavane. Team this with the tongue-in-cheek humour, the excellent musical accompaniment under the guidance of musical director, Brian Chatterton, superb costuming and Frank Fords stage direction and you have an inspired production.
Kiss me Kate, a Norpa and Richmond Valley Council presentation, is coming to the Casino Civic Centre on Saturday, April 28, at 7.30pm.
Tickets are Adult $30/16 (groups $25) and available from Casino Visitor Centre on 6662 3566 or from www.norpa.org.au. Or phone 1300 066 772.
