The Story

Side-splitting comedy set to Stephen Sondheim’s great music and unforgettable lyrics. The roguish Roman slave Pseudolus leads deliciously unsavory characters, a befuddled father with a srewish wife, neighbors, strangers and the Roman army into rollicking shenanigans. A musical favorite for the entire family.
