Thursday is opening night for the South Lakes High School’s interpretation of the classic comedy A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.

The show, which features music by Stephen Sondheim and book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart, is about a slave’s pursuit of freedom. The slave, Psuedolus, has been offered his freedom on one condition — that he get his young master “the girl.”

Unfortunately, “the girl” has already been bought by an army captain, so Psuedolus is forced to do some very quick thinking. It’s a show of disguises, mistaken identities, long-lost children, and much more.

The musical, directed by longtime SLHS Theatre Arts teacher Maria Harris, will run for two weekends – April 28, 29, 30 and May 5, 6, 7.

Performances begin at 7 p.m. in the South Lakes HS Little Theatre. Presale price:  $8, student/senior; $10,adult.  Box Office price:  $10, student/senior; $12, adult.

Save $2/ticket by purchasing tickets in advance online
