Based on the plays of Plautus, this musical with a book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart, the plot concerns a young hero, named Hero, who has fallen in love with a courtesan from next door. 

He promises freedom to his slave, Pseudolus, in exchange for the girl. A Funny Thing is out of the ordinary in that the songs' function is not to advance the plot or to illuminate character, but rather to give the audience a vaudevillian break from the breakneck pace of the farcical plot. Includes the songs Comedy Tonight and Everybody Ought to Have a Maid.


IMPORTANT: In keeping with Calliope's current Covid-19 protocol, all performers and staff are fully vaccinated, and all audience members will be required to wear masks and present proof of vaccination or negative PCR test results.
