Taming of the Shrew and A Midsummer Night's Dream Presented July 31st through August 12th at the EmilyAnn Theatre in Wimberley, Texas
The industrious students in the EmilyAnn Theatre's summer program are waking early and working late to bring you two full productions of Shakespeare under the Stars.
Even the costumes are created by the students!
At the EmilyAnn Theatre in Wimberley, Texas, young actors and crew give up what’s left of summer vacation to put on two full-length productions for Shakespeare Under the Stars.

This year, for two weeks of midsummer 2006, a cast of kids ranging from eight to 18 will perform “Taming of the Shrew” and “A Midsummer Night's Dream” on alternating nights. The shows begin around 8:30 p.m., and run from July 31st through August 12th, except Sundays. “A Midsummer Night's Dream” will run on odd-numbered nights and “Taming of the Shrew” will play on even-numbered nights.

For the 17th year, audience members will enjoy a program that is beloved around the state and beyond. Even small children sprawl out on blankets in front of the stage enjoy the students’ energetic interpretations of the Bard’s classic plots and characters. For the ninth year, the shows will be staged at the EmilyAnn Theatre, a lovely landscaped hillside amphitheatre adjacent to Wimberley High School on FM 2325.
Rehearsal for the 2006 season

“The Taming of the Shrew” and “A Midsummer Night's Dream” for Shakespeare Under the Stars are directed and produced by local talent. This program at the EmilyAnn Theatre offers students the rare opportunity to learn every aspect of theatre production. The students design and produce their costumes, design and construct sets, and run sound and lights. In addition to morning and evening rehearsals, the students take a “break” each afternoon to study other aspects of theatre with visiting college professors.

Although many of the participants are year-round theatre participants in Wimberley, competing in state UIL One-Act Play finals the past six years, every summer a handful of students from across the state come to participate. (See the full list of cast and crew below.)

One of the many remarkable aspects of this summer program is the trailer filled with student costumers designing and implementing the fifty or more authentic period costumes. The students also perform all the technical aspects of the productions: lighting, sound, set and props.

How to get there:
Driving west on FM 2325 from Wimberley, the Theatre is just a short distance west of Ranch Road 12. You will pass the Lions Club grounds and the Subway on your left. Next comes Wimberley High School, just off the road to the left. The EmilyAnn Theatre is the next driveway past the road to Wimberley High School on the left. A beautiful carved stone sign marks the gated entrance to the Theatre, although it's discreetly placed and you'll need to look carefully for it.
