Pseudolus shys away from a kiss

Stephen Sondheim's Tony Award-winning musical "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" is currently in production by an ensemble cast of SFSU actors and musicians. The musical, directed by Byron Peters, an SFSU lecturer and Contra Costa county musical theatre fixture, can be seen Thursday through Saturday through May 11 in the Little Theatre in the Creative Arts Building. Performances are at 8 p.m. There will also be a series of Sunday matinee performances.

Tickets are $11 for the general public and $9 for students and seniors. To reserve tickets, call the Creative Arts Box Office at (415) 338-2467. Tickets are also available at the door.

Sondheim's play, which draws from the Roman comedies of Plautus, follows the madness that ensues when the slave Pseudolus tries to arrange a marriage between his master's son Hero and a beautiful courtesan. The musical, which combines slapstick, witty lyrics, double-entendre and comical situations, is a classic of modern theatre.

For a complete performance schedule, see the press release.
