CORVALLIS, Ore. - Open auditions for Oregon State University Theatre's popular summer outdoor event Bard in the Quad will take place Tuesday, May 28, and Wednesday, May 29, beginning at 6 p.m. at Withycombe Hall's main stage, 30th and Campus Way, Corvallis.

This summer, Bard in the Quad will present Shakespeare's "Comedy of Errors." This tale of comic misunderstanding, mistaken identity, and love lost and found will be transported to the wild world of the reality television show "Jersey Shore."

Auditions are open to all OSU students, staff, and faculty and community members and will consist of cold readings and movement exercises. Performance dates for "Comedy of Errors" are Aug. 8-11 and Aug. 15-18. Rehearsals will begin on June 16. All cast members must be available to attend all rehearsals and productions.

A cast of 12 players is needed for the play.
