General auditions for College of DuPage College Theatre’s spring productions of “Much Ado About Nothing” and “The Diary of Anne Frank” will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 14, and from noon to 3 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 15, in the Studio Theatre of the McAninch Arts Center on the Glen Ellyn campus, 425 Fawell Blvd.

If necessary, callbacks will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 16.

William Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing” will be staged March 1 to 18. Directed by Amelia Barrett, Shakespeare’s comedy brings to the stage romance, mischief, revenge and seduction. As soldiers return from war, bachelor Benedick and his friend Claudio find themselves reacquainted with sharp-tongued Beatrice and fair Hero. Two courtships ignite: Claudio and Hero fall madly in love, while Benedick and Beatrice spar and conspire.

“The Diary of Anne Frank” will be staged April 5 to 15. Directed by College Theater Director Connie Canaday Howard, the Tony Award-winning play tells the story of two families who attempt to hide from the Nazi regime after the occupation of Holland. Based on Anne Frank’s famous diary, this passionate show brings to life the realities of the time with humor, honesty and determination.

Both scripts contain adult language and themes. Auditions for both productions include cold readings with optional monologues. No experience is necessary. For more information, call (630) 942-4000.
