A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

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. - MTI

1940's Radio Christmas Carol

Live, Onstage and On-The-Air

It’s Christmas Eve, 1943, and the Feddington Players are broadcasting from a hole-in-the-wall studio in Newark, NJ, and set to present their contemporary “take” on Dickens’s A Christmas Carol. Whether it’s the noisy plumbing, missed cues, electrical blackouts, or the over-the-top theatrics of veteran actor, but radio novice, William St. Claire, this radio show is an entertaining excursion into the mayhem and madness of a live radio show. Featuring a host of quirky characters on and off the air as well as original songs for the production, A 1940’s Radio Christmas Carol is sure to tickle your funny bone and warm the cockles of your heart. A delightful holiday evening full of laughs and surprises.

All in the Timing

What do three philosophical monkeys, a made up language, and a dating disaster have in common? They’re all a part of David Ives’s hilarious and poetically poignant masterpiece, All in the Timing. Six short plays take Flowertown’s stage in what Time Magazine calls, “theatre that aerobicizes the brain and tickles the heart.” This collection of one-acts slays audiences with wit, charm, and comedic wordplay. “Ives is a mordant comic who has put the ‘play’ back in playwright…A wondrous wordmaster,” praises Time magazine. As unique as the shows themselves, so are our directors. Each piece reflects a different director in this one-of-a-kind composition of artistry.

 

Rated PG -13

No Sex Please, We're British

A Comedy so Saucy You'll Laugh your Pants Off.

A young bride who lives above a bank with her husband who is the assistant manager innocently sends a mail order off for some Scandinavian glassware. What comes is Scandinavian pornography. The plot revolves around what is to be done with the veritable floods of pornography, photographs, books, films, and eventually girls that threaten to engulf this happy couple. The matter is considerably complicated by the man’s mother, his boss, a visiting bank inspector, a police superintendent, and a muddled friend who does everything wrong in his reluctant efforts to set everything right, all of which works up to a hilarious ending of closed or slamming doors.

Don’t miss this ‘laugh til it hurts’ British Farce!
