March 22-25, 30, 31 & April 1 @ 7:30 p.m. March 26 & April 2 @ 2:30 p.m. “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum” V.V.C. Theatre Arts & Music Depts. 760-245-4271 ext. TIX (849) "Tragedy tomorrow, comedy tonight!" Broadway's greatest farce with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals ever written – the perfect escape from life's troubles. “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum” takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested, 2,000 year old comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. The result is a non-stop laugh-fest in which a crafty slave (Pseudolus) struggles to win the hand of a beautiful but slow-witted virgin courtesan (Philia) for his young master (Hero), in exchange for his freedom.

TIX (849) brought you last season’s smash hit, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, brings another favorite to the stage. This classic story of Broadway hopefuls is set in the post depression era of the 1930s and is stocked full of toe-tapping hits like Lullaby of Broadway, Shuffle Off to Buffalo, and We’re in the Money. This fun-loving favorite is reminiscent of the Judy Garland/Mickey Rooney “lets-put-on-a-show” type films of the 40s and will promise a tap dancing chorus that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. “Come and meet those dancing feet” and don’t miss out on this High Desert premier!
 
May 16-20 @ 7:30 p.m. & Ma7 21 @ 2:30 p.m. “Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead” V.V.C. Theatre Arts Dept. 760-245-4271 ext. TIX (849). The play concerns the misadventures and musings of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters from William Shakespeare's Hamlet. Yet this play is structured as the inverse of Hamlet; the title characters are the leads, not minor players, and Hamlet himself has only a small part. R&G inhabit a world completely beyond their comprehension. Unsure of where they are going (and even of who they are and where they come from), they depend upon others to give their lives meaning.
