PHOENIX (PRWEB) March 01, 2018
Starlight Community Theater (SCT) will be presenting A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum for eight performances from March 2 through March 11. This production marks the seventh show of SCT’s 2017-2018 season.
Inspired by the farces of ancient Rome, Forum 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. Along the way, Pseudolus learns this his plan is not so simple and will have to work harder than he ever has to earn his freedom.
Playgoers will be outstanded to see performance that is a mix of mistaken identity, double-crosses, surprise family reunions and looming disaster as slaves, citizens, soldiers and a group of courtesans find out what can happen on the way to the forum.
Forum is a fast-paced musical farce that promises to have audiences rolling on the floor,” said Barbara Surloff, Director of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, “For anyone looking for a great laugh, we invite you to see this musical comedy.”
The musical's original 1962 Broadway run won several Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Author (Musical). Since its inception, Forum has enjoyed several Broadway and West End revivals and was made into a successful film starring the original lead of the musical, Zero Mostel.
