Description:

Looking for performers ages 16 and above for the Broadway musical comedy “Something Rotten!”. Please see the details below. About the project: Something Rotten! is a Broadway musical comedy that premiered in 2015 and is about two brothers, Nick and Nigel Bottom, who are trying to write a hit play in 1590s Elizabethan London. The brothers struggle to find success in the theater world while competing with the popularity of their contemporary, William Shakespeare. The musical is a mash-up of 16th-century Shakespeare and 21st-century Broadway, featuring large song and dance numbers, bold costumes, and off-stage antics. It also includes a variety of musical styles, such as funk, rock, pop, and jazz, and often makes fun of classic tropes from both Shakespeare's work and classic American musicals. Additional info: Those auditioning must prepare a vocal selection (16 TO 24 MEASURES MAXIMUM) with either sheet music for the accompanist or pre-recorded accompaniment without vocals. Auditions will also include readings from the script and some basic dance movements. The cast requires people ready and willing to learn some basic tap dancing. A few roles call for a little more advanced tap skills. The show is scheduled for September 27, 28, 29, and October 4, 5, and 6. If interested, please apply.
