Canyon Crest Academy Envision Theatre will present “Kiss Me, Kate,” Cole Porter’s classic musical within a musical, from Feb. 16 – Feb. 24 at the Proscenium Theater on the CCA campus.
“Kiss Me, Kate” brilliantly mixes the music of Cole Porter with Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew” to make one fierce “Battle of the Sexes.” The production comes to life through a promising cast of rising CCA stars from Carmel Valley, Del Mar, Solana Beach, Rancho Santa Fe, and Encinitas. The melodious Canyon Crest Academy Orchestra featuring winds, brass, strings and rhythm sections brings sophistication to Porter’s Tony Award-winning score featuring such classic songs as Too Darn Hot, Another Op’nin’, Another Show, So in Love, Brush Up Your Shakespeare, Wunderbar, and Tom, Dick or Harry, Kiss Me, Kate is great fun for students and family alike!
Showtimes are 2/16, 2/17, 2/18 and 2/24 at 7 p.m., with a Saturday matinee on Feb. 18 at 2 p.m. and an after-school show on Thursday, Feb. 23, at 4 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at www.cca-envision.org/events.html
The production will be held at: Canyon Crest Proscenium Theater, 5951 Village Center Loop Road, San Diego, CA 92130.
