A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum

Putteridgebury G&S Society

Wednesday 4th to Saturday 7th October 2017, in the Main Theatre

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart


Sondheim’s uproarious tribute to ancient Roman theatre and classic vaudeville follows crafty slave Pseudolus as he seeks to win his freedom by helping his hapless master woo the virgin courtesan next door who has, unfortunately, been promised to another suitor.


Hysteria ensues with a nagging wife, a war-drunk soldier and stolen twins! Filled with mistaken identities, clever wordplay, and slamming doors, Broadway’s favourite musical farce stands the test of time, combining fast-paced, irreverent humour with witty, upbeat music to deliver “something for everyone, a comedy tonight!”


This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe).
