This is a funny show that includes a case of mistaken identity, farcical plot twists and double entendres. The show is suggested for audiences 13 years old or older for innuendo. The show’s Producer and Walled Lake Western High School Drama Teacher, Ms. Kim Paullin said, "I'm really excited to present this show again, having directed it first 11 years ago. It's a great show for the actor as it's full of physical comedy and, as a result, is very challenging to them as well as being a hilarious show. I think the audience's will love it."
About Lend Me A Tenor
World renowned opera tenor, Tito Morelli, known as Il Stupendo, is set to perform at the gala fundraiser for the Cleveland Opera Company. Saunders, the general manager of the company, hopes this will finally put his company on the operatic map. Tito shows up too late to rehearse with the company and, through a hilarious series of mishaps, passes out and Saunders and his assistant, Max, believe he is dead. What to do? Max, an aspiring singer, is persuaded to get into Tito's Otello costume and try to fool the audience into thinking he is the great Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but when Tito comes to and gets into his other costume, all kinds of mistaken identity and misunderstandings ensue right up to the final curtain call.
