  • 3. WELCOME FROM THE ARTiSTiC DiRECTOR Glorious Summer For me, my job consists of thinking and dreaming about summer all year long. By fall (or even earlier) I’m picking plays for the next summer’s outdoor season. In December and January, dates for performances are being determined and directors and designers hired. Spring brings auditions and by May, the entire Wooden O company is in place and rehearsals start June. In many ways, I’m lucky: my summer never seems to end. A brief break at the end of August and the whole cycle starts again. Now here we are and summer has really come. There are some years when you think it might not ever arrive. Where was summer as the lengthy election cycle ground through the fall? As Washington Mutual became Chase? As the city was paralyzed by December’s snow and holiday travel plans up were ended by impassable ice covered roads? Or as the world’s first flu pandemic in forty years spread out of Mexico? Summer couldn’t come soon enough! Yet summer is here. For sixteen years, I have been sustained through the tumultuous and tedious with the expectation of summer’s inevitable return and its gift of light, warmth and our collective impulse to venture out to spend time together in the parks. All of us are pleased to be a part of what makes your summer worth looking forward to. We hope that our performances add to your “summer boost” as it sustains you through next fall and gives you something to dream about in the winter and spring. We get to think about summer all year round; we hope our efforts do a little of the same for you. — George Mount, Director of Outdoor and Touring Performances SPONSORS: Mercer Island Arts CounCIl

  • 7. SyNOPSES OF THE PLAyS The Taming of the Shrew Mama Baptista, of the Padua Trailer Park, has two daughters: Katherina and Bianca. Because of Kate’s ornery disposition, her Mama has declared that Bianca can’t get married until Kate also has a ring on her finger. In order to get closer to the younger and kinder Bianca, Lucentio and his buddy Tranio comes up with a scheme to become her tutor. Petruchio swaggers in to the trailer park to visit his friend Hortensio (also a suitor to Bianca). Motivated by the fact that Kate has a lifestyle far better than his, Petruchio resolves to woo her. To everyone’s surprise, Petruchio claims that he finds Kate charming. A marriage is quickly arranged and Petruchio immediately sets out to “tame” Kate in his own unique way. From showing up late to his own wedding to contradicting everything she says, Petruchio tries to exhaust Kate into meekness. Things only get worse for Kate when she has to set up a home in Petruchio’s “man shack” in the woods. With Kate now married, Lucentio wins Bianca’s heart and Hortensio settles for the rich widow. At a celebration for Bianca and Lucentio, Petruchio wagers that he has the most obedient wife of all the men there. Does he win the bet? Kate lets him know. Richard III The House of Lancaster has been defeated in war and the House of York is now in power. Determined to gain the throne now held by his brother Edward, Richard convinces Edward that their brother Clarence has committed treason. Edward orders Clarence to be imprisoned in the tower. Still seeking to strengthen his ties to the throne, Richard woos Lady Anne, the grieving fiancée of the Prince of Wales whom Richard killed in battle. Richard convinces Hastings and Buckingham that the reigning King’s wife, Elizabeth of York, is responsible for the imprisonment of Clarence. Richard hires murderers to have Clarence put to death. A sickly King Edward dies after learning of Clarence’s death. His young son the Prince, heir to the throne, is summoned to take his father’s place. Richard and Buckingham have the prince’s guardian, Rivers, excused and offer to protect the young Prince in the tower. Rivers is executed and the Prince is now under Richard’s power. Hastings expresses distaste for Richard’s desire to take the crown. Richard tricks him into pronouncing his own death. Buckingham convinces the people that the Prince is illegitimate, and thus Richard is finally offered the crown. Richard orders Buckingham to kill the Prince. Buckingham refuses and he is denied his earldom. Buckingham flees, attempting to join Richard’s enemy, Richmond. He fails and is captured and executed. Lady Anne dies of a mysterious cause and Richard offers himself as husband to his niece, Elizabeth of York. Richard and Richmond’s armies meet at Bosworth Field. Richard is defeated. Richmond accepts the crown and marries Elizabeth of York to end the discord between the Yorks and the Landcasters.
