Oshkosh Community Players to present 'Lend Me a Tenor'

The Oshkosh Community Players will present "Lend Me a Tenor" at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 2, through Saturday, May 4, at the Grand Opera House, 100 High Ave., Oshkosh.

This night in September of 1934 is the biggest in the history of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company. World famous tenor Tito Morelli is to perform Otello , his greatest role, at the gala season opener. Saunders, the harried general manager, hopes this will put Cleveland on the cultural map. Morelli is nowhere to be found; when he finally arrives drunk, it is too late for any rehearsal. What to do? S aunders coaxes Max into Morelli's costume, intending to fool the audience with this fake "Il Stupendo," blackface and all. Nervous amateur Max succeeds admirably, but Morelli revives and dresses for his second act. With two Otellos now in costume and two women en dishabille, each thinking she is with "Il Stupendo," the farce spins out of control onstage and off. A sensation on Broadway and in London\'s West End, Ken Ludwig\'s Lend Me a Tenor is guaranteed to leave you teary eyed with laughter.
