Auditions for the Texas A&M University-Kingsville musical production A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum will be held Thursday-Friday, June 18-19, from 4-6 p.m. in Jones Auditorium.

The musical, scheduled for Jones Auditorium July 24-25, will be a joint project between the music department and the department of communications and theater arts.

Community participation is welcome.

The musical will serve as a student activity for the summer classes
THEA 4392 Independent Study in Theatre Arts and its co-requisite MUSI 1159 Music Theatre.

Choreography is led by Carolyn Arwood and costumes are designed and created by Cristina Suárez-Machuca.
           
Inspired by the farces of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum tells the bawdy story of a slave named Pseudolus and his attempts to win his freedom by helping his young master woo the girl next door. Among the songs in the musical are “I’m Calm,” “Free,” “Lovely” and “Comedy Tonight.” The music and lyrics are by Stephen Sondheim and the book is by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart.
