Production/Casting Notes:

Please note that the parts of Petruchio and Kate have been pre-cast.

All other parts are available.  Gender-swapping will be considered (e.g. for roles such as the Lord in the Induction and Lucentio's servant Biondello).

It would be helpful if, ahead of the audition, you contacted Mark Greenall at, if you know for which parts you would be interested in reading, although this is just for awareness. 


Audition day:

It will be a relaxed and informal morning, looking at a few scenes.  There will be a breakout area for when you are not involved in a particular section.

Various scenes will be read, and the following will definitely be looked at:

1.1 - Arrival of Lucentio and the suitors bothering Baptista, Kate and Bianca

3.1 - The Latin and Music Lesson

5.1 - The Pedant et al versus Vincentio

Any questions? Please contact:
