KidzAct: Something Rotten Teen Auditions

Something Rotten Teen Show Synopsis

Welcome to the Renaissance and the outrageous, crowd-pleasing musical farce, Something Rotten.  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 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.

Hailed by Time Out New York as “the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years.”
