The play opens as the student Lucentio arrives in Padua. He hears that the merchant Baptista has two daughters, but the younger, prettier daughter, Bianca, cannot be married before her strong-willed sister, Katherina.

Role # 1 - Baptista Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Father/Mother to Katherine and Bianca. Baptista is one of the wealthiest men in
Padua, and his daughters become the prey of many suitors due to the substantial dowries he can offer. He is good-natured, if a bit superficial. At the opening of the play, he is already desperate to find Katherine a suitor, having decided that she must marry before Bianca does.

Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
The eldest daughter of Baptista. The “shrew” of the play’s title, Katherine, or
Kate, is the daughter of Baptista Minola, with whom she lives in Padua. She is sharptongued, quick-tempered, and prone to hostility, particularly against anyone who tries to marry her. Her hostility toward suitors particularly distresses her father. But her anger and rudeness disguise her deep-seated self and feelings.

Role # 3 - Bianca Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
The younger daughter of Baptista. The lovely Bianca proves herself the opposite of her sister, Kate, at the beginning of the play: she is soft-spoken, sweet, and unassuming. Thus, she operates as Kate’s principal female foil. Because of her large dowry and her mild behavior, several men vie for her hand. Baptista, however, will not let her marry until Kate is wed.
