Center Street Community Theatre announces plans for a Fall 2019 production of Lend Me A Tenor by Ken Ludwig. Performances are scheduled for October 3-6 at Wagon Wheel Center For The Arts. The show will be directed by Melissa Jordan.

 

Auditions are open to adults in the community and will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. July 8th and 9th in the basement fellowship hall of Warsaw First United Methodist Church. Callbacks will be scheduled if necessary on July 11th, at the same time and location. The cast of Lend Me A Tenor is comprised of four men and four women of varying ages. Audition format will be “cold reading,” in which participants read directly from the script, rather than preparing monologues. 

 

World-renowned tenor Tito Merelli has signed on to play Otello at a Cleveland opera company in the fall of 1934. He arrives late and after a set of hilarious mishaps, passes out after mixing wine with a huge dose of tranquilizers. Believing that the divo is dead, the excitable opera manager convinces his hapless assistant, an aspiring singer named Max, to suit up as the famous tenor and replace Merelli. Meanwhile, the tenor’s jealous wife, his ambitious female co-star, Max’s young girlfriend and the flirtatious head of the opera guild are on the scene fighting—sometimes literally—for the star’s attention.
