A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum will run at the Harrell Theatre from July 14-23, 2017. Jason Spitzer will direct this hilarious Stephen Sondheim musical from Musical Theatre International. Auditions are set for March 11, 2017 from 9:45am-12:30pm and March 12, 2017 at 6:30pm. at New Day Theatre at Carriage Crossing, next to The Crepe Maker, across from Frida's. More details are under auditions. 

Broadway’s greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. 

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a nonstop laugh fest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two. This unforgettable, hysterical musical allows a terrific ensemble of comedic actors to shine – “something for everyone, a comedy tonight!” This show is rated PG.
