Strollers' production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum opens in May





The Strollers' production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum opens up in only 6 weeks, but tickets are available now!

Go to www.thestrollers.org for all tickets and information.

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 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.

This unforgettable, hysterical musical allows a terrific ensemble of comedic actors to shine--"something for everyone, a comedy tonight!"

Winner! 1963 Tony Award for Best Musical
