Lindbergh High presents 'Taming of the Shrew'
He's pompous and self-centered; she's wild and stubborn — and when they meet it's a battle of the sexes that has lasted more than 400 years.
The Lindbergh High School Players will present three performances of William Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew" be-ginning today — Oct. 14. Performances will take place at 7 p.m. today, Friday and Saturday in the district auditorium, 4900 S. Lindbergh Blvd.
Senior Kyle Czarnecki plays the arrogant Petruchio to junior Rachel Waldemer's hot-headed Katherine. Set in the Old West, the action follows the two as they battle their way to a true love-match amid a colorful cast of characters.

Bianca has a group of eager suitors: Gremio, freshman Alex Diagre; Hortensio, freshman Mike Knoll; and Lucentio, junior Zach Stepp.
Other cast members include faithful servants sophomore Ryan Fanning, junior Joee Gardiner and senior Kerri Peters; con-fused fathers, junior Scott Linnenbringer and sophomore Nathan Sanchez.
