HSU Theatre returns


After two years of no live performances due to COVID-19, the HSU Theatre Arts Department is returning with the musical comedy Something Rotten!, which opened on Broadway in 2015 with music by Karey and Wayne Kirkpatrick and a book by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell. According to an email announcement:

“Set in 1595, this hilarious show tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two brothers who are desperate to write a hit play but are 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!”

There are roles available for approximately 20 performers. Aspiring actors do not have to be in the theatre program, but must be at least 18 years old and have proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.

“Those auditioning should prepare a monologue (maximum two minutes) and a song excerpt in English (maximum one minute) and come prepared to learn a short dance routine. Bring sheet music for the pianist (or pre-recorded accompaniment and portable speaker, etc.),” the email read.

Auditions will take place in the Gist Hall Theatre on Sunday, Dec. 5 from 6 to 8pm and on Monday, Dec. 6 from 4 to 7pm. Callbacks will take place at 8pm on Dec. 6. Schedule an audition time by contacting stage manager Ian Aguilera at daa63@humboldt.edu.
