“It’s a “mighty fine-y, glitter, glitz, and line-y, bob your head and “shake your hiney,” MUSICAL,” said Dawn Farrell, performing arts supervisor. “With talent from Oak Lawn, Chicago, Frankfort, Lemont, Westmont and Madison, WI… this cast delivers a laugh-out-loud “egg-stravaganza” with a clever sense of humor. It's a musical about making a musical — the first musical — and it pokes good-natured fun at the genre!”
The cast of over 50 have been rehearsing for six weeks leading up to the show. Talent ranges from ages 15 years-old to 60. The next show will be Meredith Wilson’s Music Man from November 11-13 and November 18-20. Stay tuned to audition information.
“We are all excited for another chapter in the long story of fantastic shows and performances put on by our community theatre program,” said Tom Hartwig, executive director. “We are so proud of the hard work that the cast and crew put into making these shows a success and we hope everyone comes out to see it!”
Please note: the show is rated PG-13.
About Something Rotten:
Welcome to the Renaissance and the outrageous, crowd-pleasing musical farce, Something Rotten. Two brothers 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".
