PROVO, Utah—Feb 6, 2014—The Echo Theatre is bringing Rome right to Center Street this month with its version of the Roman comedy A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum.
“We have a fantastic group of people who have come together to create this show” said Lindsey Palmer, Echo Theatre manager. “The actors are all from Utah County and are super talented. We are all excited to share the production and we hope everyone will enjoy this show just as much as we have enjoyed creating it.”
The 2000 year-old Roman comedy tells of the slave Pseudolus’ efforts to win freedom by helping his master, Hero, win over the love of his life. A series of farcical events find the two in a set of hilarious circumstances that are sure to keep audiences rolling.
“It’s a cartoonish romp, in the best sense of the word,” say’s Jeff Blake, playing Pseudolus.”The way the play is written, you just can’t help but laugh.”
The show will run from February 27th to March 29th at The Echo Theatre’s new location in the old Carnegie Library on 15 N 100 E. Tickets are only $10 pre-sale and $8 for students and seniors.
