2009 Spring Show


Inspired by the farces of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus, 'A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum' is a musical which tells the bawdy story of a slave named Pseudolus and his attempts to win his freedom by helping his young master woo the girl next door. The plot displays many classic elements of farce, including puns, the slamming of doors, cases of mistaken identity (frequently involving characters disguising themselves as one another), and satirical comments on social class.
