With over-the-top characters, tongue-in-cheek references and the spirit of ’90s enlightenment (1590s that is), this 2015, 10-time-Tony-nominated-hit musical “Something Rotten!” was hailed by Time Out New York as “the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years.” The show tells the story of the locals producing the world’s first musical, much to the chagrin of “The Bard.” 
 
According to director and Castle High School drama teacher Eric Antey, “Something Rotten!” allows for a celebration of musical theatre in a way the 2021 production wasn’t able to due to the pandemic.
 
“Since ‘Something Rotten!’ is considered to be an ode to musical theater, we are able to take the energy and excitement we wanted to have last year for our 25th anniversary and make it even bigger, more absurd and spectacular through this show,” Antey said. “The authors of the show have also allowed flexible casting options allowing us to adjust male and female roles as needed.” 
 
This year’s production is presented by OnPoint Guiding Wealth, a wealth advisory practice of Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. Media sponsorship includes WIKY radio and WEHT/WTVW television and TriStateHomepage.com.
