Our award-winning Riverdale Rising Stars are pleased to announce our upcoming production of the Tony-winning musical, Something Rotten!

Featuring a cast of wacky characters, the story takes place in London, 1595.  Two brothers run a failing theatre company, 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.  With a nod to the history of musical theatre, hilarity ensues with bawdy toe-tapping songs and dances!

Featuring a cast of 36 multi-talented teens, performances are scheduled for December 3, 4, 10, 11, 17 & 18.  Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 3pm.  Tickets are available at the door. $20 General, $10 for Children under 12 and Adults over 60.
