Be transported back to ancient Rome and experience the wild antics of the mischievous slave Pseudolus in Stephen Sondheim's laugh-out-loud musical A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. This slapstick romp sings and dances its way through mistaken identities, a house full of courtesans and an elaborate web of lies -- all adding up to one uproarious night of theater. The winner of six Tony Awards, Forum is one of the funniest musicals ever written, as Sondheim collaborated with writer Larry Gelbart (M*A*S*H, Tootsie) to seamlessly combine situations from the timeless comedies of Roman playwright Plautus with the fast-paced, slapstick energy of classic vaudeville. Step into the Peoria Center for the Performing Arts and enjoy classic Sondheim showtunes like "Lovely," "Bring Me My Bride" and the Broadway favorite "Comedy Tonight."

A pair of legal giants go head-to-head in Inherit the Wind, a gripping courtroom drama inspired by the historic "Scopes monkey trial," in which a small-town science teacher was put on trial for teaching evolution. Now, Scottsdale's Theatre Artists Studio brings this masterpiece of American theater back to the stage in an exciting new re-staging that highlights the story's themes of tolerance, compassion and an individual's right to think. At a time in American history when we are again called upon to defend fact over bias and fear, this story is for all who desire to think and act for themselves. The play first hit the stage in 1955, but the issues of science versus faith it explores are still amazingly timely.
