“Tragedy tomorrow, comedy tonight!” Broadway’s greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written – the perfect escape from life’s troubles. The Tony award-winning A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. The result is this joyous, musical romp through Rome with lovers searching for each other, neighbors scheming together, and everyone is hiding something. Will anyone get what they what? Does anyone really know what they want? Rated PG.

Character Descriptions

Pseudolus: A Roman slave, owned by Hero, who seeks to win his freedom by helping his young master win the heart of Philia. Quick-witted, scheming, childlike spirit. Male, 30-50 years old; Range: A2 - A4; also plays Prologus, an actor.

Senex: An old man and father to Hero and husband to Domina. Male, 45-70 years old Range: B2 - G4
