TCC Northeast Presents ‘Lend Me a Tenor’

FORT WORTH – Lend Me a Tenor, winner of three Tony Awards and four Drama Desk awards, runs April 17-20 at 7 p.m. with a 2 p.m. April 20 matinee in the Northeast Drama Playhouse, 828 W. Harwood Road 76054.

On a very important night for the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, Tito Merelli, the world-famous Italian tenor, is set to perform the starring role in Pagliacci. General Manager Henry Saunders is beyond stressed about everything turning out right and insists that his assistant, Max—a nervous, young fellow and secret tenor extraordinaire—watch over Tito’s every move to ensure smooth sailing.

After a huge fight with his fiery, Italian wife Maria, Tito receives a double dose of tranquilizers through a series of mishaps. Throw in Diana, an ambitious, female co-star; Maggie, Max’s giddy girlfriend; Julia, a flirty head of the opera guild; and a meddling bellhop fighting for Tito’s attention, and together, you have a recipe for comedic disaster.

Director Susan Sargeant says, “Ken Ludwig’s Lend Me a Tenor is a madcap comedy of high stakes, mistaken identities, slamming doors and screwball antics. It’s the perfect recipe for a fiercely funny time at the theatre!”

The production stars TCC Northeast Students Bryson Coffey, Dayen Cruz, Trevor Nevills, Luke Sargent, Darolyn Nieves, Kaitlin Bridges, Kim Okoroafor, Saige Belden. Stage Managed by Anne Egan.

Admission is $6 for the public, $3 for non-TCC students, military and senior citizens, and free to TCC faculty, staff and students.
