HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – There’s “Something Rotten” at Huntsville High School. And that’s a very good thing for theater lovers!
“Something Rotten” is a musical farce, set in the 1590s, that follows brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom. The two are desperate to become successful playwrights. Unfortunately, they face stiff competition in the form of some guy known as William Shakespeare.
When the Bottoms hear from a fortune-teller that the future of theatre will involve singing, dancing and acting – all at the same time – they decide to write the world’s first musical.
The result is “Something Rotten,” which, “features large song and dance numbers, and a wacky cast of over-the-top characters, each given his or her own special moment in the show to shine.”
