Kiss Me Kate
The Wesleyan Wolf Players have been rehearsing since November to perfect Kiss Me Kate, a unique frame story production contrasting the 1940s with the Renaissance Era. Junior Kelsey Rappe describes the show as “a complicated, but hilarious love story that takes theater inception to a whole new level.” The Red Carpet Premiere is on Feb. 8, and the show starts at 7 p.m.
The Red Carpet Premiere creates a better overall experience for the audience and the cast members because “the actors feed off of the audience,” according to stage manager Maguire Wilder. “It’s great to kick off a show’s run feeling so loved and supported.”
Audiences can look forward to an eleven-minute dance number called “Too Darn Hot” kicking off Act 2 and two “hilarious New York gangsters” played by junior Brooks Lalley and sophomore Patterson Beaman. Fellow cast member Kelsey Rappe said, “Every scene with them leaves you in stitches,” and senior Alexis Wildermuth claims their character portrayals “alone should be enough for someone to want to see the show.”
Freshman Carson McKinney said this “wow factor” production “is like this sudden burst of chaos, classical slap-stick humor and random flash mobs that just make the audience stand up after every number.”
Junior Lauren Pavelec, sophomore Laura Von Bargen, and sophomore Jana Smith created countless elaborate costumes for each cast member from both time periods that tie the whole show together and really submerge the audience into the story.
Feb. 8 has been designated at a strict homework-free night, so come show some school spirit, have a good laugh, and support the Wolf Players next week in Wesleyan’s winter production of Kiss Me Kate.
