BWW Feature: FORUM opens tonight with Platte Valley Players

BWW Feature: FORUM opens tonight with Platte Valley PlayersDirected and Choreographed by Kelly Van Oosbree with Music Direction by Bonnie Simcox, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way the Forum will run at The Armory Performing Arts Center in Brighton, CO from June 16- June 24. This production is generously supported by the Brighton Lodging Tax and SCFD.

With music and lyrics by the legendary Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim and a book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart (the award-winning write of the film Tootsie and the M*A*S*H* TV Series), this hilarious, slapstick farce is regarded by many as a high point in the history of Broadway musical comedy. Be prepared to laugh early and often- as the signature show tune puts it, "Tragedy tomorrow, Comedy tonight!"

Dan Lawless (Prairie Playhouse's Shrek) Joey Taczak (Opera Colorado) and Trevor Wood (Performance Now's Hello Dolly) join the cast as The Proteans. Returning to PVP are Wes Munsil as Senex, Sara Metz as Philia, BranDon Phelps as Marcus Lycus, TJ Hogle as Miles Gloriosus, Bri Tracy as Tintintabula, Jasmine Jones as Vibrata and Shandra Duncan as Gymnasia.
