The lead players in this production were excellent - very funny, excellent voices. I really enjoyed the evening! And the proceeds go to an very good cause, so you should definitely attend and donate to the Lupus Foundation.

These actors/actresses really laid it all out in their performance that we saw. I'm sure they all gave an extra effort due to the charity (Lupus foundation) that they were supporting with all the profits from the show. The 3 piece "orchestra"...continued

I'd forgotten how much enthusiasm community theatre projects. The artists are in it for the love of the art. The show was terrific, and everyone there who tended to the audience was great.

Description

Broadway’s greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. In “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” a crafty slave struggles to win the hand of a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan for his young master, in exchange for his freedom. Taking comedy back to its roots, this Stephen Sondheim musical fuses 2,000 year-old Roman comedies with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville- and the result is non-stop laughter!
