Auditions for The University of Texas-Pan American University Theatre production of William Shakespeare's "The Tempest" are 7 p.m. Feb. 26-27 in the Studio Theatre of the Communication Arts and Science Building.

More than 30 people at least 18 years old are needed for various roles in "The Tempest," which runs April 25-29. Director Dr. Eric Wiley will listen to potential cast members recite 10 lines from any Shakespeare play.

"If it is fully prepared, you increase your chances of being cast," said Wiley. "I need to know that the people I pick can handle the language. There's barely time to learn the play, but not enough time to teach people who cannot handle the material. Hearing 10 lines is enough to show me whether people can do the roles."

Directions and additional information are available by calling the UTPA Box Office at 956/381-3581 or Wiley at 381-2338.
