A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart

Presented May 2007 at the Norway Grange
Sponsored by Norway Savings Bank and New Balance Foundation.

Directed by Kenn Sawyer.

The scheming slave Pseudolus struggles to win the heart of a virgin courtesan for his young master in return for his freedom.

Unfortunately the gods are not on his side. Pseudolus is up against a lecherous father, an attempted abduction, an imaginary plague, mistaken identities, a short-sighted neighbour, a sleeping potion… and a corpse in drag. Confused?
