Audition Update: Queer Classics – The Taming of the Shrew

Update 4/7/15: If you missed the open call you may submit through Actors Access for an appointment time for Friday, April 17, 2015. Click Here for a breakdown of roles and all the details.

Queer Classics is holding open call auditions Saturday, April 4 for Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew – An Exploration in Gender Expression, directed by Casey Kringlen, presented as part of West Hollywood’s One City One Pride and the Hollywood Fringe Festival. In modern times, Queer Classics’ Kate and Petruchio might identify as trans, but the 1950s are a completely different world. In this fresh and sexy take on Shakespeare’s classic comedy, the company explores the characters’ expression of gender in a time before there were labels to define it.

Please prepare no more than 45 seconds of Shakespeare verse (8-20 lines) and bring your headshot and resume. Rehearsals begin in late April. Performance dates: June 11 – 28. Additional AEA auditions will be held in mid-April by appointment. (To request an appointment or for questions contact For more information, including audition location, directions, and more go to
