Lend Me a Tenor

By Ken Ludwig

Directed by Miles Lavkulich


Described as “An accelerating snowball of laughter”, Lend me a Tenor is one of the most successful farces of modern theatre and a hilarious take on the frenetic world of opera management. When world-renowned tenor, Tito Merelli, signs on to play Otello at a Cleveland opera company in the fall of 1934, the town is in an uproar of excitement. But through romantic intrigues, late arrivals, mix-ups with tranquillizers and intrusions from aspiring singers, nothing turns out the way it’s expected. Recently revived on Broadway, this deliciously entertaining comedy will have you rolling in the aisles.


Lend me a Tenor stars Liam Coughlan as Tito Merelli, the world famous tenor, and Ryan Erwin as Max, the harried assistant who has a secret hankering to sing opera.  Wayne Nolan plays Henry Saunders, the anxiety-ridden General Manager who has given Max the task of getting Merelli to the opera house on time, and Julia Grace is  his bubbly daughter, Maggie, who is also Max’s girlfriend. The lively cast is rounded out by Rebecca Oben as Maria, Tito’s voluble Italian wife, Diane Tzingounakis as a man-eating soprano,  Alison Main-Tourneur as Julia, the Chairman of the Opera Guild, and Jeremy Heynen as a singing bellhop. Don’t miss this fabulous comedy that is sure to provide a wonderful finale to the Vagabond Players season.
