Funny Thing Happened on the Way to The ForumNext up for Allegro Stage Company: “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” slated to play April 11-20 at Northwest Vista College’s Palmetto Center for the Arts.

Director Tim Hedgepeth has already cast Rick Sanchez, who gave a memorable performance as the Emcee in Allegro’s “Cabaret” earlier this year, as Pseudolus. The rest of the roles are up for grabs.

Auditions start at noon Jan. 26 at the Palmetto Center, 3535 N. Ellison, San Antonio, 78251 (click for map). Those who want to try out are asked to show up ready to perform 16 bars of “an upbeat, comical song,” according to the audition notice; an accompanist will be on hand. Also in the notice: “Pratfalls encouraged!” And dress comfortably for the dance audition.

Another date for potential cast members to note: Rehearsals start March 3.

Besides Hedgepeth, the creative team includes choreographer Wendy Ellis, music supervisor/co-producer Tom Masinter and co-producer Mellissa Marlowe.
