Curtain time is still months away, but tickets for the 100 Mile Performing Arts Society stage production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum are on sale from now until Christmas.

The advance sale allows people to buy tickets for Christmas giving, and to make it easier, ticket vouchers can be purchased and exchanged later for a ticket on the day of choice.

The show runs nightly Feb. 23-25 and March 1-3. Saturday matinee performances will be held on Feb. 25 and March 3.

Tickets and ticket vouchers are $15 and available at Donex, Didi’s and Curves.

Producer Jan Richmond says the play is unlike anything the theatre group has done before.

“It’s very funny, fast-paced and quick-witted,” she says, adding there are few costume changes, and just a single set carries the play through from beginning to end.

People should be made aware the show has adult-themed content and is not considered suitable for children.

The theatre group is in need of volunteers for set construction and a variety of other jobs, prior to and during the run of the show. Anyone who wants to help can contact Richmond via e-mail at


Executive elected

The society had its annual general meeting and election of officers on Dec. 1.

The executive body remains the same as last year, with Nick Goshorn as president, Marie Hooper as vice-president, Karen Smith as treasurer and Richmond as secretary.
