Posted on: Nov, 30, 2021
The Theatre Arts Department at Grays Harbor College is holding auditions for its spring production, the Tony-Nominated Broadway hit, “Something Rotten!” Auditions are open to the public. Individuals aged 16+ with strong musical sensibility and comedic timing are encouraged to audition.
Auditions will take place on Tuesday, December 7th at 6pm and Thursday, December 9th at 4pm in the Music Pavilion Rehearsal Hall on Grays Harbor College’s Aberdeen campus. Auditioners will be asked to sing a portion of "Welcome to the Renaissance" and perform a short dance combination.
The spring production of Something Rotten will mark the first in-person performance at the Bishop Center since the pandemic began. The college is taking several measures to increase safety. Auditioners are asked to please bring a copy of a vaccination card or proof of a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours. Masks are required to be worn properly at all times and can be provided at the audition.
About the Show
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 Rockstar known as “The Bard.” When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theater involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical. But amidst the scandalous excitement of opening night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self...and all that jazz.
Rehearsals for GHC’s production of Something Rotten! will begin Sunday, January 2nd and the show will be presented during the first two weekends of March, 2022 at the Bishop Center for the Performing Arts.
