Something Rotten is happening at Peoria Players Theatre!

On this week's episode of Out and About, Dr. Mae Gilliland Wright of ArtsPartners of Central Illinois talks with actor Caleb Johnson about the upcoming production of 'Something Rotten!' at Peoria Players Theatre.

The year is 1595... and William Shakespeare is arguably England's biggest celebrity. But much to his chagrin, two brothers named Nick and Nigel Bottom are about to shake things up. With the help of a soothsayer, the brothers get a glimpse into the future — and what results will surprise you. With hysterical dialogue and situations, as well as music ranging from Gospel to ballads and rock, this play is a joyous celebration of everything you love about Broadway.

For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the theatre's website.
