Auditions are coming up this weekend for the Pella Shakespeare Company. Following a one year hiatus, the group is back, but with some changes. Company founder Ann Wilkinson says the focus this year is on the youth groups which will be limited to 15 cast members each for the teen group and the youth group. She says this is the first year for auditions, which are needed due to the limited amount of time available to rehearse. Auditions for aspiring actors ages 10-18 will be held from 1-3 pm Saturday June 4th at the Joan Kuyper Farver Auditorium at the Community Center.
