A limited number of complimentary student tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis at TAMIU's College of Arts and Sciences, department of fine and performing arts, located in the Center for the Fine and Performing Arts, room 217C.  Additionally, 15 minutes prior to every performance, all remaining tickets are offered to TAMIU students with valid student ID at no charge.

“The Taming of the Shrew” is a merry knockabout farce about love and marriage. It’s the story of wealthy merchant Baptista Minola’s two daughters, Katherine and Bianca, and how they were wooed, won and wed.
