Lend Me a Tenor is a feel-good, farcical musical comedy, a tale of unexpected romance, hilarious gags, and mistaken identity. Set in the early 1930s, an opera house is on the verge of disaster when the principal tenor is unable to perform. Still, the show must go on, and the opera managers must scramble to find a replacement before all is lost. With a lively cast of over-the-top characters, up-beat tunes, and a penchant for mayhem, Lend Me a Tenor, by Ken Ludwig, is an energetic, laugh-filled romp for the whole family.  Directed by Marc Robinson.
