Something Rotten follows the story of the Bottom brothers, Nick and Nigel, who struggle to find success in the theatrical world as they compete with the wild popularity of their contemporary William Shakespeare. Desperate for a new idea, Nick consults an off-brand soothsayer, a shady relative of Nostradamus, to learn about what the future of theatre holds, and, as a result, invents the concept of a musical.
Director: Mitchell Prudhomme
Assistant Director: Hollie Guidry
Choreographer: Malani Hoffpauir
Audition dates: October 22nd and 23rd, 9:30-11:30 am
Performance Dates: Fridays-Sundays from February 3rd - 12th
Those interested in auditioning may arrive at any point during either of the audition windows (unless auditioning for a tapping role --see below). You will be asked to sing roughly one minute of a musical theatre song, preferably one sung by the character for which you are auditioning. (This will be a capella unless you bring your own track.) You will also be required to read a scene from the show. For more information, including the option to request a copy of the audition scene early, contact Mitchell at MJPrudhomme@usa.com.
If you plan to audition for one of the tapping roles (Nick, Shakespeare, Nostradamus, Featured Ensemble), plan to attend the dance call at 9:15 am either day. Videos of the routine can be found below, and our choreographer will review them briefly at 9 each morning with anyone interested.
