Schaumburg Summer Theatre will hold auditions for lead roles, supporting parts, chorus and dancers to be cast in the Cole Porter musical comedy, "Kiss Me Kate." Auditions will begin at 7 pm on Wednesday, May 15 and Thursday, May 16, at the Prairie Center for the Arts, 201 Schaumburg Ct., Schaumburg, IL.
No appointment is needed for the auditions, which are open to all high school and college students (including graduate students 25 and under).
All persons auditioning must prepare a short vocal selection of their choice, not to exceed 32 bars (approximately 60 seconds). A piano accompanist will be provided at the auditions. Cold script readings will be required for those auditioning for a speaking role. Although dance auditions will be held at a different date (May 28), dancers are required to attend general auditions and sing a short vocal selection.
