Show Recurring Dates

Campus Location


Additional matinee performance available at 2 p.m. on April 29 and May 6.

Please join the Nevada Conservatory Theatre and UNLV Theatre Department in their performance of "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum", which was inspired by the farces of the Ancient Roman playwright Plautus, a slave named Pseudolus attempts to win his freedom by helping his young master woo the girl next door. Farce, puns, slamming doors, mistaken identities and satirical comment on social class highlight this bawdy musical. The title derives from the line that vaudeville comedians often used to begin a story; "A funny thing happened on the way to the theatre." (Rated PG)

Directed by Rick and Tammy Pessagno.
