Mainstage Musical: Something Rotten!

PERFORMANCES: July 27-30, 2023
SHOWTIMES: Thursday, Friday, and Saturday @ 7pm; Sunday @ 2pm

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.

Called “the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years,” this musical romp will have you laughing until your sides hurt!

Students will build confidence, work as a team, and learn the foundations of musical theatre as they prepare to perform in a production of Disney’s High School Musical Jr! Each day will begin and end with an ensemble building activity designed to energize participants and build community among the cast. Our experienced teaching artists will also engage students in a daily workshop focused on a particular theatre-based skill. The large remainder of the day will be spent in music, dance, and acting rehearsals, as students learn the process and skills required to perform a musical. The session will culminate with a live performance for family and friends in the Daniel S. Harrop Theater!

Our studio offers state-of-the-art equipment and resources, giving students the ultimate creative freedom to complete their vision. Students will have the opportunity to use hi-definition cameras, a green screen studio, audio recording equipment, steady cams and dollies in the creation of their film.
