Auditions for Shakespeare Play “The Winter’s Tale”


The Willits Community Theatre will be holding auditions for The Winter’s Tale by William Shakespeare on Saturdays and Sundays over the next few weeks. 

Auditions will be held Saturday January 18, Sunday January 19, Saturday January 25 and Sunday January 26. All auditions are at 2 pm.

The Winter’s Tale is a play about redemption. In the play, jealousy compels a king to makes some bad choices, which wreaks havoc in the world around him. But because of the healing aspect of nature, and also because of a flat-out miracle, the play has a positive ending. Shakespeare scholars consider the play to be a romance, because it has elements of both comedy, tragedy and the miraculous. 

There are roles for 15 males and for 8 females ranging in age from the mid-teens up to senior citizenry. The director is also looking for 4 male and four female dancers.  

The Winter’s Tale will rehearse from late February throughout March and will open on April 10. It will play for ten shows and will close on Sunday April 26. Scripts for The Winter’s Tale are available at the Willits Library. For questions or for more information, call director Mike A’Dair at 200-2462 or email him at
