Take music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart. Then add on the years of experience of the cast and crew of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum at Vero Beach Theatre Guild and you’re pretty much guaranteed to have a rollicking good time between the March 12 opening night and the closing curtain March 31.
One of the things the Guild does so well is a well-written farce and farces don’t get much better than Forum. Greg Harris plays the role of the slave Pseudolus, played originally by Zero Mostel on stage and in the 1966 film. Harris said he loved watching Zero Mostel and Nathan Lane bring the character of Pseudolus to life, “and now it’s my turn … It’s fun and daunting all in one … an actor’s dream! What other show do you get to go in and just play and make people laugh?”
Harris made his debut at Vero Beach Theatre Guild in Hello Dolly and has appeared in Cabaret a...

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.”

In Charles Dickens’ novella “A Christmas Carol,” Ebenezer Scrooge is a mean, sour, cheap old business partner.

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...
