San Juan Community Theatre’s Family Theatre program has musical fun with world’s most famous bard in its upcoming fall production.

Auditions for Steve Titford’s “Shakespeare Rocks!” will be held on Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 11 and 12 at 3 p.m. in the Whittier Theatre. Island kids in grades K-6 and their parents are invited to attend.

The musical comedy is full of modern songs and a plot that is complete with puns and tongue-and-cheek humor — an up-to-date look at the life and times of William Shakespeare and how he came “to be.”

A pre-audition workshop will be also be held at SJCT on Sept. 5 at 3 p.m. for children who have never auditioned or been cast in a play.

Rehearsals will be held after school and on Sundays. The play will be presented on the Whittier stage Nov. 16-19.
