Audition Tonight For ‘Funny Thing’ at CTG


CTG practices an “open casting policy,” which means that all roles are always open, all are invited to audition, and newcomers are always welcome. Below are the available info about the show’s casting needs and requirements:

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart
Directed by Kevern Cameron
Musical Director: Tracy Lee Witko
Choreographer: Roxanna Wagner

Something familiar, something peculiar, something for everyone: a comedy tonight! is the promise of Broadway’s most loved musical farce. Pseudolus, the Roman slave attempts to win his freedom by helping his master woo the pretty girl next door. But the road to romance is never smooth, as our crafty hero dodges a riotous succession of stunning surprises, mistaken identities, wild chases, bawdy humor, and zany characters—all in the pursuit of love and freedom! This fast-paced, witty and irreverent romp features infectious tunes and laugh out loud lyrics by musical theatre legend Stephen Sondheim. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum may be a 50 year-old musical based on 2000 year-old plays, but it remains a breath of fresh comic air, perfect for a summer evening!
