The Mask and Rose Theater will hold auditions for the musical comedy "Something Rotten!" on March 26th and March 27th , 2024 from 5:30-8pm at the Wild Rose Theater in Puposky 24011 Highway 89 NW

In the comedy “Something Rotten!” , two siblings set out to write the world's first musical in this hilarious mash-up of sixteenth-century Shakespeare and twenty-first-century Broadway. 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, siblings Nick and Nigelina 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 Nigelina set out to write the world’s very first musical. But amidst the scandalous excitement of opening night, the Bottom Siblings realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self, and all that jazz.
