A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to The Forum

The West Allis Players held auditions for their summer musical, "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" April 28, 29 and 30. I have worked with director Mary Beth Topf on a number of shows and went to audition, recalling that she had told me I would make a good Senex (one of the main characters). Unfortunately, the role is just a bit too high for me, musically. I did, however, get cast as Erronius, the old man who's children were stolen by pirates. Buster Keaton played this part in the movie adaptation, and those are big shoes to fill. It isn't a huge part, but the scenes I'm in are quite stealable--. Oh, well, this keeps my string of non-singing characters in musicals--.
Performances will be June 20, 21, 27, 28 and a matinee on June 29. More details as they occur.
