A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
“Something familiar, something peculiar, something for everyone: a comedy tonight!” is the promise of Broadway’s most loved musical farce.
This side-splitting show, is fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written - the perfect escape from life’s troubles. A Roman romp which takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2,000 year old comedies of Roman playwright Plautus resurrected with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville.
The result is a non-stop laugh-fest in which a Roman slave (Pseudolus) assists his young master (Hero) to win the hand of a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan (Philia) in exchange for his freedom. The road to romance is never smooth, as our crafty hero dodges a riotous succession of stunning surprises, mistaken identities, wild chases, bawdy humor, and zany characters—all in the pursuit of love and freedom!
Fun packed frolicking to infectious tunes and laugh out loud lyrics by musical theatre legend Stephen Sondheim featuring “Comedy Tonight”, “Everybody Ought To Have A Maid” and “That Dirty Old Man”

Local Amateur Musical Players - Affectionately known as LAMPS!
We are a friendly group of all ages who enjoy being together to stage high quality musical shows. The group’s roots are in Tonbridge but we perform mainly in Southborough at The Royal Victoria Hall Theatre, which lies between Tonbridge and Royal Tunbridge Wells, in Kent, England. We firmly believe that the word "amateur" should only be a sign of our unpaid status and not reflect the standard of the show we produce. We are always delighted to welcome new members and patrons. If you can't find what you're looking for on our website please Contact Us.
