Something Rotten! The Musical welcomes you to the Renaissance! Set in the 1590s, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to wwrite a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as "the Bard." 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.

Best for audiences 13 and older.
