Gulfport Little Theatre announces auditions for its production of The Taming of the Shrew, adapted from Shakespeare’s classic ‘battle of the sexes’ story where young gentlemen are in love with Bianca but, she cannot marry until her older sister, Kate, is wed. However, Kate is the shrew, and no man will have her. The ensuing back and forth between Kate and her suitors is one of Shakespeare’s finest comedies, and this adaptation brings the story to life for a modern audience.
The show will be directed by Cal Walters. Auditions are Saturday, February 16 at 1pm and Sunday February 17 at 2:30pm at the theatre located at 2600 13th Avenue in Gulfport behind Chris’ Beauty College on Pass Road.
This is an open audition with twenty-plus roles for ages 11 and older. Auditionees should come prepared to read from the script. If cast, you must be available for at least two days of school performances. Public performances will be April 5-7 at GLT.
