LA SALLE -Previously announced auditions for Stage 212’s summer 2020 production, “Kiss Me, Kate,” have been postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Try-outs will now take place on Friday, May 1 and Saturday, May 2 at Stage 212, 700 First St., La Salle.
To avoid having large groups of people in the building at the same time, auditions will be conducted on a scheduled basis. A sign-up sheet will be posted at stage212.org, along with any further audition news.
Director Reid Tomasson will cast 20 men and women in a variety of lead, supporting and ensemble roles for this Tony Award-winning Cole Porter musical.
