Sondheim’s musical romp through Rome has desperate lovers, scheming neighbors and secrets behind every toga. One of Broadway’s greatest farces is light, fast-paced, witty, irreverent and one of the funniest musicals.”
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” takes comedy back to its roots, combining 2000-year-old comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the infectious energy of class...
In Charles Dickens’ novella “A Christmas Carol,” Ebenezer Scrooge is a mean, sour, cheap old business partner. Tom Mula’s comic play “Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol” begins with Jacob Marley chained and shackled in a hellish eternity. To free himself, he must redeem Scrooge and in the process he redeems himself but not without a lot of laughs in between.
This two-hour comic play, performed Friday at 7:30 pm Dec. 7, Saturday at 2 pm Dec. 8 and Sunday at 2 pm Dec. 9, is an Apron Series Reader’s production. Actor’s read from scripts but move around the stage to add to the entertainment.
Patti Hall will direct the play and Scott Freshley, in the title role, leads a cast of Jeffery Barkwell, Paul Williams, Don Keeper, Claude Cooper, Jerry Reichert and Jeff Hall. Sam and Katrin Peck are sponsors of the comedy play.

Welcome to the jury room and Vero Beach Theatre Guild’s first Apron Series production of their 61st season. Sherman Sergel’s “Twelve Angry Men” is a play based on the 1954 teleplay by Reginald Rose and depicts the drama of the American criminal justice system.
As a jury begins deliberations in a homicide trial involving a 19-year-old man who has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father, it looks like an open and shut case. But when a single dissenter begins to sow the seeds of reasonable doubt, tempers begin to flare and civil discussions turn into heated arguments. As personalities and prejudice begin to infiltrate the deliberations, the courtroom classic erupts with the bitterness and volatility that often drives human behavior under such circumstances.
The staged reading of “Twelve Angry Men” will be directed by Theatre Guild veteran Pat Kroger. Pat has acted, directed and served as a board...
“Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not after you,” wrote Joseph Heller in his 1961 novel Catch-22.
Whether we Americans, as a lot, are paranoid is debatable. What’s not debatable is that we have an affinity for–if not an outright obsession with–conspiracies and conspiracy theories. But why? Why, after more than fifty years, can so many among us still refuse to accept official accounts of the JFK assassination? That the moon landing was real? That Elvis didn’t fake his own death?
The Vero Beach Theatre Guild will open the Steven Dietz’s conspiracy-grounded thriller YANKEE TAVERN on Tuesday, September 11. Set five years after the events of September 11, 2001, the play uses the mother of all conspiracy theories as the conceit for a powerful and frightening thriller that confronts our search for closure through endless tall tales.
