Germantown Community Theatre

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.

Based on the memoirs of burlesque sensation Gypsy Rose Lee, Gypsy is a classic story about one of the most frightening aspects of show business. Convinced her daughter June can strike it big, Rose, the ultimate stage mother, builds a show around her and takes the family on the road in the last days of Vaudeville.

As her children find their own paths away from her, Rose must confront her own unfulfilled potential.

Now Playing Onstage in Memphis - Week of 5/18/2014 ANNIE GET YOUR GUN
Cumberland County Playhouse
5/2-7/11/2014
Annie Oakley is the best shot around, and she manages to support her little brother and sisters by selling the game she hunts. When she's discovered by Col. Buffalo Bill, he persuades this novel sharpshooter to join his Wild West Show. It only takes one glance for her to fall head over heels for dashing shooting ace Frank Butler, who headlines the show. She soon eclipses Butler as the main attraction which, while good for business, is bad for romance. Butler hightails it off to join a rival show, his bruised male ego leading the way, but is ultimately pitted against Annie in a final shoot-out. The rousing, sure-fire finale hits the mark every time in a testament to the power of female ingenuity.Music and Lyrics by Irving Berlin; Book by Herbert Fields & Dorothy Fields
