Auditions: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
January 14, 2020 @ 1:00 pm
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
Book by Burt Shevelove & Larry Gelbart. Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Based on the plays by Plautus. Originally produced on Broadway by Harold S. Prince. Directed by Pete Kelly and Aileene Stark.
A fast-paced, musical comedy takes situations from 2000-year-old stories, adds the energy of vaudeville, and the plot twists and mistaken identity of farce to create one hilarious show. The clever slave, Pseudolus, plots to earn his freedom by winning the hand of a lovely courtesan for his young master and ends up in quite a few tangled schemes in the process. First performed by DCT in 1982.
Auditions are open – no appointments. Resumes and headshots are appreciated, but not required. Auditioners should prepare 16-32 Bars of a song of their choosing, and bring sheet music for accompanist – no recorded music. Auditioners should come dressed for movement/dance, and be prepared for cold readings from the script.
There are roles for 11 males and 8 females. The directors are looking for ages ranging from young adult to the old and wise – but slightly befuddled.
