Comedy Last Month

Posted on March 24th, 2008 by

Plautus has been in the Gustavian air this past month.

The drama department at Gustavus put on a production of A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum on the last weekend of February and the first weekend of March. The play was hilarious and a smashing success–especially the Feb 29th performance, which featured a cameo appearance by our very own Will Freiert!

On May 6th students from St. Olaf performed their own adaptation of Plautus’ Mostellaria complete with songs, Latin, and clever contemporary references. The bar has definitely been set very high for the upcoming Festival of Dionysus on June 3rd!
