A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a fast paced farce that promises to have audiences rolling on the floor.  Taken straight from the roots of comedy, Forum combines the ancient comedies of Plautus with a vaudevillian delivery.  Pseudolus schemes to win the heart of the beautiful virgin, Philia, for his young master, Hero.  In exchange, Hero will grant Pseudolus his freedom once and for all. However, things are never as easy as they seem. Chaos ensues with hair-brained schemes, cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and convoluted plot twists.  One of the funniest musicals ever written, Forum promises: "Something for everyone: a comedy tonight!"
