A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is one of the most hilarious musicals ever written and Theatre Ancaster is bringing it to local audience in November.
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is the bawdy story of Pseudolus, a crafty slave who must win the hand of a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan for his young master to gain his freedom. Of course, there are unexpected plot twists, a few cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two along the way.
“Forum’s a non-stop riot,” said director Sam Frisk. “I’ve laughed at every one of our rehearsals as our cast has brought this outrageous show to life.”
Frisk said he excited to work alongside Tina Rath, choreographer, and dynamic duo Mark and Janice Reese as music directors. Appearing on the stage is a small but talented cast of returning and new faces.
Head of Theatre Ancaster’s box office Jim Langfrey is expecting sell-out crowds for the incredibly funny show. Forum opens Nov. 22 for three weekends at Ancaster High’s Theatre Auditorium, 374 Jerseyville Rd W. The box office is located in the West Wing Foyer, outside the auditorium. Tickets can be reserved either by calling 905-304-SHOW (7469) or in person at the box office weeknights from 6-8pm.
