Dessert Theater presents Lend Me A Tenor, by Ken Ludwig
***When ordering tickets, please select the date from the drop-down menu for the performance you wish to purchase tickets for.  There are 3 performance dates.

Lend Me A Tenor is set in September 1934.  Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is primed to welcome world famous Tito Merelli, known as Il 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 Merelli's Otello 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 Otellos are running around in costume and two women are running around in lingerie.  A sensation on Broadway and London's West End, this madcap, screwball comedy is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laugher.

Winner of 3 Tony Awards and 4 Drama Desk Awards.

Attendees are invited to a dessert reception upstairs following the performance during which they can mingle with the cast.

Desserts are generously provided by the Smyrna Opera House Guild.

Some content may not be considered appropriate for children.  Attendance by children is at the discretion of parents.
