A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Friday, May 10

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is presented by City Circle Acting Company of Coralville and is directed by Patrick Du Laney. Recent grads, present your 2013 tassel at the box office and get a free ticket through our Tix for Tassels promotion.

Broadway's great farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written -- the perfect escape from life's troubles.

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 a non-stop laugh-fest in which a crafty slave (Pseudolus) struggles to win the hand of a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan (Philia) for his young master (Hero), in exchange for freedom.

This show contains some adult situations, and is considered rated PG-13.
