(Shakespeare) performer of his art / Method actor he always plays his part. That is why his bio is written in / iambic pentameter for the win. Happy at The Barn is he to return / Many shows he’s done – theatrical churn. If you don’t know him yet you need to be / Giving focus to onstage revelry. If you’ve had enough of seeing his face, / Wait for Rumors, when his wife takes his place. Support for him while she too does expound, / A better partner nowhere could be found. Special tapping thanks he needs to offer / To Sammi Kuhl, his miracle worker.

He would like to thank everyone at The Dramateurs for making him feel so welcome, and his friends and family for their continued love and support.
(Nick Bottom) – Rob is relieved to be taking a break from his never-ending crusade to expose the lie that is "wrinkle free" bed sheets and instead strapping on his first pair of tap shoes and trying to convince the audience he is almost capable of keeping it together on stage for once. Rob has a varied and complex background that might worry most rational people, but he's tamed and mostly harmless thanks to the never-ending love of his dog, Leeloo Dallas Multipass. There are too many people that are amazeballs and very loved in Rob's life to single out, but they know who they are and don't require specific callouts.
(Ensemble) – Roie is making his stage debut at The Barn after performing at other community theaters like Playcrafters and Dutch County Players. He’s an aviation enthusiast who likes flying simulators and drones. He also flies drones for The Greater Philadelphia Search and Rescue unit.

(Bard Boy & Ensemble) – Caitlin is egg-lectric-fried to join this egg-cellent cast of Something Rotten! in a true dream role of a tap-dancing omelet. She has previously danced her way through New York, Havana, a convent, Duloc, Greece, various classrooms, a boat, a planetarium...but is most egg-cited to dance on a griddle. When not on stage, you can often find her teaching second grade, whisking up tap classes, running Relaxed Performances for neurodiverse audience members and volunteering at the Players Club of Swarthmore. Much love to my family, NEPS and coworkers!
(Snug & Ensemble) – Leslie’s love of the theater began at a young age when her parents, both very talented and deeply involved in local theater, introduced her to this amazing world of acting, song, and dance. Performing on stage was a passion for Leslie from then on. Her last role was as Laura in The Glass Menagerie at Abilene Community Theater in Texas. Leslie had a long hiatus from the stage to take on the very challenging roles of mother, scientist, application developer, and spouse. Thanks to the encouragement of her sons, who are both involved in theater, and maybe a little bit of jealousy over all the fun they were having, Leslie took a chance and auditioned for this musical. She is very grateful and excited for her first opportunity to rejoin the world of community theater with this amazing cast and to help bring Something Rotten! to The Barn’s stage.
(Troupe & Ensemble) – Maeve is excited to be part of her first production at The Barn Playhouse and to be performing in one of her favorite shows.

Mary Beth would like to thank the members of *NSYNC for giving her the skills to scream like a crazed banshee that have proved to be quite useful in this production.
