Auditions Saturday for 'The Comedy of Errors'

Auditions for the Valley Shakespeare Festival’s presentation of The Comedy of Errors will be Saturday, May 4, 11-2 p.m. at the Shelton Community Center, 41 Church Street.

Wanted are equity/non-equity male and female actors to fill out roles through the production. Organizers are also looking for high-school and college-aged acting interns to join the company at this call as well.

Auditioners should prepare to read at least a one minute classical monologue, preferably Shakespeare, and to also tell a joke. If you do not have a monologue there will be sides from the script at the audition. Also, be prepared to possibly stay and “cold-read” from script as well. Bring a picture and résumé stapled.

The first rehearsal will be on or around Monday, July 1. Rehearsals will be mostly in the daytime and go through July 16.

Performances will be at 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 17, Thursday, July 18, and Saturday, July 20, Veterans Memorial Park in Shelton.
