April – May 2014
‘A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum’ continues for final weekend of performances at CMC Theatre
The Colorado Mountain College Theatre 2013-14 season is set to end on a high note with the crowd-pleasing musical comedy “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.”
A playful spin on the classic Vaudeville opening line, “A funny thing happened on the way to the theater,” this raucous musical follows the escapades of a Roman slave, Pseudolus, as he desperately seeks citizenship. Misplaced affections, mistaken identities and mixed motives drive a zany cast of characters into absurd mishaps that result in sublime comedy.
Stephen Sondheim composed the music and lyrics, with Bert Shevelove and Larry Gelbart as librettists. The original cast starred Zero Mostel and opened on Broadway in 1962. The show has enjoyed two revivals, including the Tony-winning 1996 production that earned Nathan Lane a “Best Actor in a Musical” award.
CMC Theatre’s production of “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” is directed by Gary Ketzenbarger and stars CMC Theatre adjunct instructor Brad Moore as Pseudolus. Performances are April 4-5 and 10-12 at 7 p.m., with matinees April 6 and 13 at 2 p.m., in the New Space Theatre at Colorado Mountain College in Spring Valley. Viewers are cautioned that the show contains bawdy humor that may not be appropriate for young children.
Tickets can be reserved now at firstname.lastname@example.org or 947-8177. Admission to “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” is $20 for adults and $15 for students, seniors, staff and faculty.

“Master 4 Listening Styles and Take Your Relationships to the Next Level” – Michelle Lefebvre, CMC Adjunct Instructor
When you open your mouth, do you seal the deal or kill the deal? Your leadership and your success depend on how well you present yourself, your ideas and your values – and on how well you listen to others.
In this session you’ll walk away with techniques to:
• Identify your listening style
• Create strong bonds and relationships through the power of listening.
• Challenge your own status quo.
To learn more, call 963-2172. Everyone is welcome to attend. There is no charge and no need to R.S.V.P.
On Thursday, April 24th at 7PM, our Acting II Students will be performing their final projects for the year; their personal, ten-minute productions, the acting pieces they have been perfecting this semester as the culmination of a year of acting class. Each piece is performed solo, and a great deal of blood, sweat, and emotion has gone into each one.
The Student Workshop Productions are free and open to the public; the pieces being performed are all original, and will be graded as a student’s final.
Come join us for our wrap up of our theatre year with these intimate performances. Everyone is welcome.
