IT’S a right carry on at Woodend Creative, where members of Scarborough Musical Theatre Company are rehearsing their new show, ready for a duo of performances in Pickering in November.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a musical farce set in Ancient Rome with soldiers, courtesans, eunuchs, slaves and soothsayers all over the place.

The 1962 Broadway hit, recently revived at the National Theatre, was a West End hit for Frankie Howerd leading to the famous BBC TV spin-off Up Pompeii.
