Theatre III holds auditions for the new romantic comedy 'Much Ado About Love' on Monday, March 17, and Wednesday, March 19, 7:30-9:30 p.m. at the theater, 250 Central St., West Acton.

The play has an original plot that comes with a twist: all the lines come from Shakespeare's plays and sonnets. There are two songs in the play, as well.

Director David Nanto will cast three men and three women in their 20s-30s in the play. Auditions will include cold readings from the script and singing a simple folk or art song.

Rehearsals will be Wednesday nights and Saturday afternoons, beginning April 5. Show performance dates are June 6, 7, 13 and 14.

A script is available at Acton Memorial Library. For information on the play, visit
