The Civic Players Presents: Lend Me A Tenor

Lend Me a Tenor by Ken Ludwig is set in 1930s America and the scope for art deco styling will undoubtedly play to the Civic Players‘ strength of well researched and detailed set design.

Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is primed to welcome world famous Tito Merelli, Il Stupendo, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as the star of the opera. Tito arrives late and, through a hilarious series of mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant Max believe he’s dead. In a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, Saunders persuades Max to get into Merelli’s costume and fool the audience into thinking he’s Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but Merelli comes to and gets into his other costume ready to perform.

Now two opera stars are running around in the same costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo.

A sensation on Broadway and in London’s West End, this madcap comedy is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laughter.
