Bethany Theatre to Present “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum”
The Bethany College Theatre Department will present “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” March 29 — 31 at 8 p.m. in Wailes Theatre on the Bethany College Campus.

“A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” is a witty and irreverent musical comedy that takes place in ancient Rome and is inspired by the absurd comedies of the Roman playwright Plautus. The show, directed in this production by Bethany College senior Patrick McGregor and features senior Joey Albus in the lead role of Pseudolus, tells the story of a slave trying to win his freedom by playing matchmaker with his young master and the girl next door. Various hilarious situations ensue, including masquerades, mistaken identities, cross-dressing and one very funny funeral.

“A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” features music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Larry Gelbart and Burt Shevelove. In its original 1962 Broadway run, it won several Tony Awards, including best Musical and Best Book. It has since enjoyed several revivals and was made into a successful film.

For ticket information please contact the Bethany College Theatre Box Office at (304) 829-7124.
