Meet the Cast of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum – David Newton is Erroneous

david newtonWho do you play in Forum? I play Erroneous. Erroneous is a “befuddled old man”, whose life has been consumed with the search for his long lost children.  He has finally returned home having finally given up his search, and now longs for the quiet comfort of his lonely home.  What he finds instead is chaos, conundrums, charlatans, and shenanigans.

What is your background in theatre? I have been involved in the Community Theatre for more than 25 years.  My first appearance at Walterdale was in the 1990 production of Humpty Dumpty, and I have appeared in or worked on far too many productions to count.  Probably one of my favorites was as Count Carl Magnus in A Little Night Music in 2001.

Why did you come out for this production? I have loved this show for longer than I can remember.  The blend of outlandish comedy with truly clever writing and brilliant music makes this show incredible fun to create and perform.  The chance to work with Adam again certainly didn’t hurt either.

Got any funny road-trip stories? My funniest road-trip story is from a family vacation – and while driving through a down-pour of almost biblical proportions, our car developed a small leak in the radiator.  When my father pulled into a service station and told the attendant that “we need water”, the attendant just looked up, held up his hand, and laughed.

Why do you think audiences should come to this show? Whenever a show has both beautiful music and clever writing, it is sure to make for an enjoyable evening of theatre.  BUT when you add the level of comedy this show includes, you are in for a truly memorable and outstanding experience
