Upcoming Auditions: "Kiss Me, Kate"
Combine Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew" with Cole Porter's music and lyrics to get "Kiss Me, Kate," an instant success with every cast and audience. This is a play-within-a-play where each cast member's on-stage life is complicated by what is happening offstage. Audition dates are June 2-6, 2013, 7 p.m., at the Grand Opera House. A musical sing through will be held Sunday, June 2, followed by musical auditions June 3-4 (Monday and Tuesday) and speaking auditions June 5-6 (Wednesday and Thursday.) There are parts for 13 males and 5 females, and volunteers are also needed to help behind the scenes. Production dates are July 26-28 and Aug. 1-3, 2013. For more information, email director Hannah Carda
