A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart, music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, based on the plays of Plautus

November 12-22, 2015
Show sponsors: Norway Savings Bank and Ripley & Fletcher Ford

Directed by Kenn Sawyer

Sondheim’s joyous, musical romp through Rome has desperate lovers, scheming neighbors and secrets behind every toga.

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum is a non-stop 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.
