The completely original new musical Something Rotten! opens at the Amarillo Civic Center Complex Auditorium for a limited two performance engagement February 20-21. Tickets are on sale now.

This hilarious new musical comedy tells the story of brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom, two playwrights stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance Rockstar Will Shakespeare. When a soothsayer foretells the next big thing in theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, the Bottom brothers set out to write the world's very first musical!

With the most singing, the most dancing and the most gut-busting laughs on Broadway, it's something wonderful and something for everyone. It's Something Rotten!, "the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years" (Time Out New York)!

Nominated for 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Something Rotten! isa deliriously entertaining new musical comedy that brings down the house!” (New York Post).

It is directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw (Mean Girls, The Book of Mormon, Aladdin), with music and lyrics by Grammy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Wayne Kirkpatrick and Golden Globe Award and Tony Award nominee Karey Kirkpatrick. The book is by Tony Award nominees Karey Kirkpatrick and best-selling author John O’Farrell.

The award-winning design team of Broadway veterans includes Scott Pask (scenic design), Gregg Barnes (costume design), Jeff Croiter (lighting design), Peter Hylenski (sound design), Josh Marquette (hair design), Phil Reno (music supervision), Glen Kelly (arrangements), Larry Hochman (orchestrations), Steve Bebout (associate director), Brian P. Kennedy (associate music supervision) and casting by Wojcik | Seay Casting.

With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, Something Rotten! is an uproarious dose of pure Broadway fun and an irresistible ode to musicals — those dazzling creations that entertain us, inspire us, and remind us that everything’s better with an exclamation point!
