Mustard Seed Theatre will present Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale April 13-29, 2012. The production will be set in modern-day Seattle and the shores of Alaska, with Native-American music and mythology infusing the production.

General auditions for The Winter’s Tale will be held on Sunday, October 9 from 6-8 pm and Monday, October 10 from 5-7 pm. We are especially interested in anyone who performs Native American music or dance, and are looking for a diverse cast.
