Here's what our audiences had to say about Something Rotten!

"Wow! What a job! A tour de force on everyone's part, SO much work and

love in that show. Brilliant. Thank you"

"What a fabulous performance! I am so impressed by what you put together, and by the skills of so many people in the Upper Valley–from acting to singing to tap-dancing…!!! I love the fact that so many of the singers/actors have "regular" jobs, and yet they have such talents. Bravo, you are making a real contribution to the arts in the Upper Valley  I think White River Junction is going to be known as the theatre center of Vermont, don't you?"

"Something Rotten is absolutely wonderful! We can’t rave enough about it! We went to yesterday’s matinee and it was 2 1/2 hours of pure delight. What an outstanding production that overflowed with amazing talent; the dancing, singing, acting, choreography, costumes, props -everything was perfect. Thank you so much for bringing such joy to the Upper Valley. BRAVA/O to you and the entire cast!"

"Bravo to everyone involved in making this incredible show possible. The cast was on fire from start to finish, providing the audience with a rich and cleverly written  script, opportunities for abundant laughter, and the gift of gathering as a community to share some of the best live theater has to offer."

"Thanking each and everyone of you for such a wonderful, dynamic, talent-filled, and crowd pleasing performance today. Wow, what an exceptional display of artistry, endurance, and pure pleasure. You had me at “renaissance,” and the smile on my face never left for the entire show. How wonderful it was to laugh, and to see a performance of such unified talent and brilliance."
