Chicago Heights, IL-(ENEWSPF)- The Drama Group has issued a call for auditions for its upcoming production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Calling the musical “Broadway’s greatest farce is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written,” the thespians off of Ashland says the play “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.”
