Millennium Rep continues its 2020 season at the Manchester Arts Center with Ken Ludwig's hilarious farce “Lend Me a Tenor,” opening Friday, Feb. 28.
When a world-famous Italian tenor passes out before his gala benefit performance for the Cleveland Opera Guild, chaos of operatic proportions ensues. Soon two singers are running around in the same costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo. Add obsessed fans, a hot-blooded wife, and an ambitious bellboy. A sensation on Broadway, Ken Ludwig’s madcap farce is guaranteed to leave you laughing.
Director Amanda N.J. Wright’s cast includes veteran Chaffin’s Barn actor Charlie Winton, along with Rick Ruiz, Elizabeth Damewood, Joel Longstreth, Laurie Burger, Michael T. Hansen, Tori Hinshaw and Doreen Schulz.
“Lend Me a Tenor” runs February 28 - March 8, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors and military, and $10 for students, and are available at millenniumrep.org or by calling 931-570-4489. The MAC is located just off the Manchester square at 128 E. Main St.
