“Something Rotten!” is happening in East Lyme.

And by that, we mean the Tony-nominated musical comedy titled “Something Rotten!”

East Lyme Regional Theater is back on the boards, post-pandemic, and is staging this play over the weekend at East Lyme High School.

In “Something Rotten!,” two brothers have dreams of rising to the top of the British theater world in 1595, but the problem is there’s only one big name in theater at the time, a writer named Shakespeare. The brothers finally hit on a solution: they can add music and dance to plays. Let there by musicals!

Erin Sousa-Stanley directs the piece, and her husband, Chris Stanley, is the music director.

The cast includes Zach Scovish and Spencer Stanley as the brothers, Cory Candelet as Shakespeare, and David Conaway as Nostradamus, along with Courtney Scovish and Grace Gilbert.

“Something Rotten!” opened on Broadway in 2015 and features a book by John O’Farrell and Karey Kirkpatrick and music and lyrics by Karey and Wayne Kirkpatrick.

“Something Rotten!” 7 p.m. Fri. and Sat., 2 p.m. Sun., East Lyme High School, 30 Chesterfield Road, East Lyme; East Lyme Regional Theater; $20;, (860) 245-9753.
