This Thanksgiving break, Tri School Theater students got the opportunity to see the hit musical Something Rotten at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts.

Something Rotten is a playful musical comedy set in the Elizabethan Era that follows the exploits of brothers and theater owners Nick and Nigel Bottom as they try to compete with their theatrical rival William Shakespeare. The show is chock-full of references to Shakespeare and the classics, making it a treat for anyone familiar with classical theatre.

Tri-School Theatre is often given discounts on tickets and opportunities to see shows around Orange County, whether it’s shows at

local high schools or at professional theaters. And being theater nerds, students had a lot to say about the show.

“The show was excellent!” exclaimed freshman Claire Early.

“I was really impressed by the technical aspects: lighting, scene changes, and set design. It was clearly a tech heavy show,” remarked Senior Tina Foley.

“I liked the actors’ performances,” Tina says, “and I love the soundtrack a�� I’ve been listening to it for 2 years, so it was amazing to finally see it on stage!”

But what’s so special about seeing a play with Tri-School versus seeing a play on one’s own?

Tina explains that seeing shows with the Tri-School group is fun “because I can be with my friends and see a show I really like at the same time, basically doing two fun things at once.” She also comments on why the opportunity to see shows is really meaningful to her: “I really appreciate this because my family usually doesn’t want to see shows like this with me.”

It’s clear that seeing professional shows like Something Rotten together provides Tri-School Theater students inspiration for their own work, exposure to the fine arts, as well as a lot of fun!
