Kiss Me Kate


Kiss Me Kate

Cole Porter's "Kiss Me Kate", provided our 2005 audiences with a show within a show, the action switching from Verona to Baltimore, from Shakespeare to theatre backstage.
Rosa Howden directed and choreographed, David Waldmann was Musical Director, Bob and Frieda Gilmour produced and Lisa Rubinovich was Stage Manager.
Melanie Lombard's colourful costumes provided a beautiful adornment to the elizabethan setting with Arnie Gross and Leon Gelkoff providing the comedy as the 2 gangsters stranded in the middle of the stage.
