Auditions begin soon for Valley Center Stage’s next production, a musical comedy romp directed by Alan Wilkie.

“A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” is a non-stop laugh-fest musical in which Pseudolus, a crafty slave, schemes to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted courtesan named Philia, for his young master, Hero, in exchange for his freedom. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors, and a showgirl or two.

Auditions for the show are 7 to 9:30 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 10 and 11, with callbacks from 7 to 9:30 p.m. on Feb. 12.  “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” runs Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, May 1 to 17. For more information,
