[October 09, 2012]
This weekend the Lincoln
Community High School Theatre Department will present the fall play
"Lend Me a Tenor," by Ken Ludwig.
The play centers around a fictional world-famous tenor, Tito Merelli,
who arrives at the tiny opera house in Cleveland. The producers of
the show are thrilled that he agreed to come and put Cleveland on
the map, but as he arrives with his diva wife, he unintentionally
takes too many pills to help him relax, making the producers assume
he has died. In order to have the show go on, an assistant dresses
up as "Il Stupendo" and hits the stage, just as the real tenor
awakes from his slumber, unaware that he now has a twin running
around. Comedy and farce ensue.
"Lend Me a Tenor," a play with a
musical flair, will be performed at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday
and at a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday.
