Notre Dame High School students are getting ready for “another op’nin’ of another show.”

A crew of 65 fine arts students will stage the ever-popular musical Kiss Me Kate from April 15 to 18 at Red Deer’s Memorial Centre.

This show-within-a-show features actors trying to stage Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, but as life imitates art, the complicated off-stage relationships of the four main cast members make things interesting.

Kiss Me Kate includes the catchy tunes Too Darn Hot, So In Love, Brush Up Your Shakespeare and, of course, the ubiquitous Another Op’nin’, Another Show.

This stage production will feature a live student orchestra, a revolving set and extravagant costumes.

A special ‘pay what you can’ preview performance will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 15. Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. showings from Thursday to Saturday at 7:30 p.m. are $15 ($10 for students or seniors) from the Notre Dame school office.
