A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Ovation Repertory Theatre

Bakersfield, CA , 93301-4311

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. The Ovation is exited to announce that highly respected High School Drama teacher and director, Jennifer Resolme, will make her community theatre directing debut with this show! Don’t miss it!
