Lend Me A Tenor
by Fredericksburg Theater Company
Apr. 29 - May. 15
Set in the 1930s, Lend Me a Tenor is a madcap screwball comedy that takes place when Tito Merelli, the fiery-tempered and world-famous Italian superstar, arrives in Cleveland, Ohio to make his debut with the local opera and promptly goes missing. As Saunders, the show's presenter, conspires to cover for Tito’s absence, placate his hot-blooded wife, and distract his most passionate fans, chaos on a truly operatic level ensues.
Written by prolific playwright Ken Ludwig, the original production of Lend Me a Tenorwas a huge sensation on Broadway and nominated for nine Tony Awards.
Cast in the production are Elliot Dooley as Max, Heidi Eubanks as Maggie, David Cummings as Saunders, Pierre Minjauw as Tito, Amy Taylor as Maria, Justin Elliott as Bellhop, Heidi Melton as Diana, and Rhonda Behrends as Julia.
FTC Executive Director Steve Reily will direct the production. Guest Artist Judd Vermillion will execute the scenic design. Faith Reily will stage manage the production.
