Hampton High School: "Something Rotten!" — Spring Musical 2023

The musical this year will be Something Rotten!, a newer musical comedy that garnered nine Tony nominations in 2015.  Set in 1595, London, Something Rotten! centers around the Bottom Brothers, Nick and Nigel, two playwrights trying to find success but are stuck under the shadow of the rock-star playwright of the Renaissance, William Shakespeare. Desperate to find success, Nick seeks help from the soothsayer Nostradamus to foretell the next big hit. When the soothsayer tells him 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. Come and enjoy this performance in the high school auditorium on April 21, April 22, April 28 or April 29 at 7:30 p.m.
