Edward Albee’s award-winning Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is considered a masterwork of American drama, with dazzling language and unforgettable characters. There is no dysfunctional stage couple quite like George and Martha. The funny and darkly unsettling duo welcomes you into their living room, along with the young couple Honey and Nick.

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.

Director Jason Fortner and Musical Director Emi Stefanov are seeking a talented troupe of Players to inhabit this rollicking musical comedy.

Audtioners will be required to sing a 32 bar Broadway song of their choosing. You must bring Sheet Music or sing something from the Something Rotten Show Score ONLY. No tracks or a capella auditions.

There will be a Dance Audition segment and you MAY be asked to read from the script.
