A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum

Acclaimed actor Geoffrey Rush will return to his home stage in a comical musical entitled A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum.

Based on the book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart, this Tony Award Winning Musical illustrates the trials of Pseudolus, played by Geoffrey Rush, and his attempt to gain freedom from his master Senex (Shane Bourne) and domineering wife Domina (Magha Szubanski). How does Pseudolus do this? Through manipulating the discovery that Senex’s son, Hero, portrayed by Hugh Sheridan, has fallen for a virgin courtesan of course.

Award-winning Simon Phillips (Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Love Never Dies) directs this star-studded cast to produce a musical that will have you clutching your sides in glee.
