A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
“A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” running May 20-29, at Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive, Largo. Tickets start at $26.50. Call 727-587-6793 or visit largoarts.com.

Performances will be Thursday through Saturday, 8 p.m.; and Sunday, 2 p.m. “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” takes comedy back to its roots, combining the ancient comedies of Plautus with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.

This multiple Tony Award winner is a non-stop laugh-fest in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggles to win the hand of a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan named Philia, for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of hair-brained schemes, mistaken identity, slamming doors, and a showgirl or two. This unforgettable, hysterical musical allows a terrific ensemble of comedic actors to shine.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream
“A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” presented by Tampa Ballet Theatre; Saturday, May 28, 2:30 and 7 p.m., at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. Tickets start at $25. Call 727-791-7400 or visit www.rutheckerdhall.com.

The Tampa Ballet Theatre is closing its season with “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” with two shows at Ruth Eckerd Hall.

“A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” Shakespeare’s most popular comedy, focuses on three parallel stories – the trials and experiences of two sets of lovers camping in a magical forest with a meddling Puck, Oberon and Titania, the warring king and queen of the trickster fairies, and a group of rough craftsmen staging a not so good production of Pyramus and Thisby for the wedding of the lovers.

Watch these three stories intertwine in the most hilarious and bizarre ways. Magic, action, love and humor are the ingredients for this unforgettable story.

A small, scrappy New England theatre company rehearses and performs three shows at once: Hamlet, Charley’s Aunt and a new adaptation of Dracula to avoid paying royalties. What could go wrong? The actors and designers are spending their summer attempting to create Broadway-grade productions in a 200-year-old barn. Alas, poor Yorick, we’ve lost his skull again! A hilarious comedy that takes you in front and behind the scenes ...
