Auditions have been scheduled for several upcoming local stage productions.

- SALT LAKE SHAKESPEARE'S production of "Side by Side by Sondheim," on Saturday, May 10, from 9 a.m. until noon in the Utah Opera Production Studios, 336 N. 400 West. Auditioners should prepare two songs, one of which should be by Stephen Sondheim. An accompanist will be provided.SLS's artistic director, Alexander Gelman, will direct the musical revue, scheduled to run June 12-29. For further information, or to schedule a specific audition time, contact Douglas Kinney-Frost at 321-4606.

Auditions for the remainder of this summer's SLS season -"Twelfth Night" and "The Compleat Wrks of Wllm Shkspr (Abridged)" - will be announced later.

- WOMEN ONLY are being asked to audition for the Off Broadway Theatre's latest espionage parody, "Dumb Blond: Laugh Till You Spy," with tryouts scheduled for Saturday, May 10, from noon to 3 p.m.

Cody K. Carlson will direct Bob Bedore's original script.

There are roles for two women, ages 18 to 36, to round out the cast of the James Bond spoof. Hair color is not a factor (the title refers to the male hero and is not a comment about the women, who're all smarter than the play's heroes). There will be cold readings from the script. Auditioners do not need to come with prepared material. Various accents are welcome. All acting positions are paid.

The comedy will run June 26-Aug.2.
