Producers Karie Dykeman and Kim Hale are excited to once again be working with Jacob and the talented production team for this outrageous crowd-pleasing musical. Caitlin Secrest is the Music Director and Kristen Dasto is the Choreographer.
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. Something Rotten 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. It’s become clear that “nothing’s as amazing as a musical,” so don’t miss your chance to be a part of this history-twisting tale on the BRAC stage!
Performance dates: Jul 28 (Thu – 7pm), Jul 29 (Fri – 7pm), Jul 30 (Sat – 7pm), Jul 31 (Sun – 2pm), Aug 4 (Thu- 7pm), Aug 5 (Fri – 7pm), Aug 6 (Sat – 8pm), Aug 7 (Sun – 2pm).
