Map for Auditions

Hub Theatre is directly behind Walton Hall on the map.  Park in the Church Parking and walk up.

If you want to audition email us on shrewaudition@outlook.com and we will let you know available slots.

During auditions we will ask you to read a pre-prepared Shakespeare piece that will be available to download from here 

Please select the scene most appropriate to the part you are auditioning.  Not all scenes involve all characters but the idea is that actors familiarise themselves with one or two scenes that would most like to present at their audition.  We are looking for ability to express the text and personality that enhances the character.  

We may well cast across the gender excluding the four ‘lovers’.  (Petruchio, Lucentio, Katherina and Bianca) .  We are open to ideas and a flare for comedy.

WE ARE NOT EXPECTING YOU TO LEARN LINES FOR THE AUDITION.

We may ask you to sight read as well during the audition.  Members of the audition panel will read – in if other characters are required.

The auditions are completely OPEN and we are casting for all parts. 

The Director, Steve Brigden, will have the final say in castings for this play.
