Created by Grammy Award-winning songwriter Wayne Kirkpatrick, and successful screenwriters Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell, “Something Rotten” is an outrageous, musical farce hailed by “Time Out New York” as "the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years". Set in the 1590’s, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom 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. Tickets are $22 in Rhynsburger Theatre.

February 10-11, 2 p.m.
Directed by Dr. Claire Syler
Radium’s discovery made Madame Curie an international celebrity and was considered a miracle cure for a myriad of illnesses. In 1926 luminous watches were painted with this wondrous, glow-in-the-dark discovery, until the girls working in factories painting the watch dials begin to fall ill with an unidentified disease.
Written by D.W. Gregory, this story is inspired by true events following Grace Fryer, one of the dial painters, fighting for restitution against her former employer Arthur Roeder. Roeder attests this miracle element radium cannot possibly be something that treats tumors and also be the cause of burgeoning illness amongst the factory workers. Called a "powerful" and "engrossing" drama by critics, Radium Girls offers a wry, unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsessions with health, wealth, and the commercialization of science. Tickets are $22 in the Rhynsburger Theatre.
March 13-16, 7:30 p.m.
March 17, 2 p.m.
“Iphigenia Crash Land Falls on the Neon Shell That Was Once Her Heart (a rave fable)”
Directed by Kevin Brown
Written by Caridad Svitch, this play hurls one of Greek tragedy’s most compelling sagas into a sleek netherworld of sex, drugs and trance music. Iphigenia is the daughter of a political celebrity who embraces sensuous excess with a transgendered glam rock star named Achilles in a desperate attempt to flee her inevitable fate. Tickets are $22 in the Rhynsburger Theatre.
