We were recently suprised and thrilled to find out that Robert Anthony Jones from NY was in Rolla for the summer to play Psuedolus in OAT's "A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum" Mr. Jones is the actor that played 3 of the major parts in the Lamb's Theatre Off-Broadway production of "The Prince and the Pauper". We have listened to his voice many, many times from the official cast recording.
We contacted him about meeting with our cast for lunch, and he graciously suggested that we put together a number from Prince and Pauper for the OAT Follies, a summer talent showcase. Picture here is the group that sang "Simple Boy" with him. (Nisbetts, Lights, Hamachers, and a Wegner) It was a delightful and memorable experience.
Last night we went to the opening of "Forum". It was a treat to see Robert Anthony Jones perform. He is a exceptionally gifted singer and one of the most enjoyable actors to watch I've ever experienced. The rest of the cast were terrific as well. Forum will be playing at OAT this weekend and the next, and ticket information is available at ozarkactorstheatre.org
"A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum" is a PG rated show. For a synopsis of the plot click here.
