Spring 2020 Something Rotten Jr. Pilot Program

This class is open to advanced students in grades 5th-12th!

Join us on stage in the premiere of the JUNIOR version of Something Rotten!

Take the next step as an actor and be the first to perform iTheatric's new Something Rotten Jr. This unique opportunity will give your young actor access to brand new material and challenge them as they work with high level Teaching Artists and the chance for national exposure.

Welcome to the Renaissance and the outrageous, crowd-pleasing musical farce, Something Rotten. Created by Grammy Award-winning songwriter Wayne Kirkpatrick, and successful screenwriters Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell, Something Rotten was lauded by audience members and critics alike, receiving several Best Musical nominations and hailed by Time Out New York as "the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years".

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.
