     Looking for some worthwhile entertainment?  Tonight is the premiere performance of the musical comedy A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum at Providence High School in Clarksville.  I am eagerly looking forward to seeing the show both because of the quality of the performances that are typically produced there, and also because my son Collin is playing the role of Pseudolus.  The role is a very large and challenging one--the very sort of role that Collin relishes.  

     As is always the case with the musicals at Providence, this one will be a major production with community-wide support.  Tickets for tonight's gala dinner performance are $100.00 each, and many local luminaries will be on hand to support the school and its theater department.  Tickets for the subsequent performances are a much more modest $14.00 each, and can be obtained by calling the Performing Arts Ticket Office at 945-2538, ext. 328.  There are performances on April 17, 19, 23, 24, 25 and 26.  

     This will be Collin's last show at Providence.  He graduates next month, and in the fall he will begin his studies as a theater major at the University of Evansville.  

     It appears that my youngest child has grown up on me.  That sort of strikes me as a funny thing, but even more so as an unbelievable one.  Break a leg, Son.

It was great! I know you are very proud. Collin was definitely the star of the show.
