The young men of both families are hot-blooded and ready to fight at any provocation, despite the Prince’s edict against such fights.

From this risk-laden romance comes both joy and tragedy for all.

A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum
May 2-4, 2025

The Paramount Theatre
139 S Center St, Goldsboro, NC 27530

Broadway’s greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright, Plautus, with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a nonstop laughfest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan named Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two.
