Spring Musical

Something Rotten

"Something Rotten!" is a hilarious musical set in Renaissance England. It follows the Bottom brothers, Nick and Nigel, struggling playwrights desperate to outshine William Shakespeare. Seeking a soothsayer's advice, they misinterpret a prophecy about the future of theater, thinking they should create the first-ever musical called "Omelette." The ensuing chaos involves mistaken identities, romantic entanglements, and Shakespeare's attempts to thwart their efforts. Packed with witty humor, catchy songs, and clever references, the musical is a rollicking journey through the world of creative rivalry and unexpected success.
