Sherman Playhouse will hold auditions for its production of William Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew” Feb. 12-13 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The play is one of Shakespeares’ most notable farces which depicts matchmaking in a hilariously devised plot, complete with stock characters, mistaken identities and biting wit.

A cast of 10 to 15 men ages 10 to 70 and three women ages 16 to 70 is sought.

Requirements will be cold readings from the script. Actors are encouraged to prepare a two- to three-minute comic Shakespeare monologue to be performed at audition. This is encouraged but not required.

Production will run mid-April to mid-May.

Rehearsals will be held Mondays through Thursday evenings beginning Feb. 18.

The playhouse is located at 5 Route 39 North.
