Rated 4.0

It’s a hyperactive, colorful, old-school mounting of Shakespeare’s durable battle of the sexes. Director Rodger McDonald has the physical antics at a fever pitch, and leads Jeff Kean (Petruchio) and Bevin Bell-Hall (Katherina) bring experience and style to their roles. It’s the way a good community company might have done Shakespeare a hundred years ago in a theater very much like the historic Woodland Opera House. F, Sa 7:30pm; Su 2pm. Through 11/8. $5-$17.
