Brussels Shakespeare Society is looking for actors and actresses for our summer production of The Taming of the Shrew, directed by Heli Pärna. Performance dates are 30 June – 04 July.

Auditions will be held at 40 Rue Belle-Vue, Ixelles.

We are looking for several female and male characters of all ages, so everyone is very welcome! The age requirements are flexible and it is important to look the age, rather than actually be that age, so don’t be discouraged to come along.

Also, apart from the main characters, not all characters need to be played as the gender they are in the original play.

Rehearsals will start beginning of February on Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays.
