Event Description:
LEND ME A TENOR Performance dates for Lend Me A Tenor are March 3, 4, 5 and March 10, 11 and 12, 2017 Friday and Saturday performances at 7:00pm and Sunday performances at 2pm in the theater at the Historic Homestake Opera House (HHOH) located at 313 West Main Street, Lead. The play will be directed by David Scherer. This production is supported in part by the South Dakota Arts Council, through the Department of Tourism, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Synopsis of Lend Me A Tenor: Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is primed to welcome the world-famous Tito Morelli, II Stupendo, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as Otello. The star 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 Morelli's Otello costume and fool the audience into thinking he's Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but Morelli comes to and gets into his other costume ready to perform. Now two Otellos are running around in 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, screwball comedy is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laughter. Lend Me A Tenor is produced in cooperation with Samuel French, Inc., New York, NY. Wine, beer, soda and water is available for purchase.
