Upper Peninsula Shakespeare Festival is back for a second season of theatre. The 2016 lineup includes The Taming of the Shrew and Frankenstein.
U.P. Shakes will take up residence at the Ore Dock Brewing Company, an award-winning brewery located in Marquette. Last season, the company's Macbeth played to sold-out houses in the same venue.
"The U.P. is a one-of-a-kind place," says Artistic Director Jamie Weeder. "It demands a one-of-a-kind venue like the Ore Dock."
"This is our second year in existence," says Executive Director Alastar Dimitrie. "It seems fitting to explore two of literature's most memorable duos, Kate and Petruchio and Frankenstein and his monster."
The Taming of the Shrew runs July 17-August 3. Frankenstein runs October 16-30.
