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.
Welcome to the Renaissance and the outrageous, crowd-pleasing musical farce, Something Rotten. 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.
The Newtowne Players
The mission of the Newtowne Players is to promote all aspects of the performing arts in Southern Maryland. We provide an outlet for people in the community who are interested in theatre in any capacity at all. Whether their interest is performing, directing, writing, make up, costume design or technical support, we provide opportunities for all through education, growth and hands on experience of working as a volunteer in any of these areas of theatre. In the process, we provide quality entertainment to the surrounding communities. Our goal is to foster, promote and increase the public knowledge and appreciation of the arts and cultural activities in St. Mary's County and Southern Maryland, and to make live theatre affordable and available to as many members of the surrounding communities as possible.
