How was the musical theater format invented? Come and find out (sort of) in our wildly funny summer musical, "Something Rotten!"
June 14th – July 16th
Directed by Gwen Overland
Choreographed by Rebecca K. Campbell
Starring: Evan Heintz, Cody Pettit, Declan Whitworth, Katie Joos, and Aubrey Campbell
Our summer blockbuster musical is set in the 1590s, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star, William Shakespeare. When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical. But amidst the scandalous excitement of opening night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self… and all that jazz.
“Something Rotten!” opened on Broadway on April 22, 2015, where it ran for 708 performances. It was nominated for ten Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
