Combining everything you love about Broadway—big dance numbers, bold costumes, and eye-rolling off-stage antics—Something Rotten! is the musical extravaganza you didn’t know you needed!

*A $10 donation for the Glendale Community College Food Pantry would be greatly appreciated. The GCC Food Pantry feeds approximately 1,000 hungry students per week; due to demand outweighing supply, students are only allowed one visit per day to the food pantry. Oftentimes, this is the only food the students get the entire day. The GCC Food Pantry relies 100% on donations to keep shelves stocked.?
