FTC Presents “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” – February 22 to March 10

Rome will never be the same! In this inspired musical comedy by Stephen Sondheim with the book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart, boy wants girl, slave wants freedom, and Roman war hero wants…. the same girl.

Inspired by the farces of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus, the musical tells the bawdy story of love, mistaken identity, class warfare and the search for family – with all the masquerades, deceptions and blackmailing going wrong at every turn1

This Tony Award winning musical is a classic of the stage and was the subject of a 1966 film. Don’t miss the laugh-filled trip to ancient Rome presented by the Fredericksburg Theater Company at the Steve W. Shepherd Theater, 1668 Highway 87 South.
