WYO GALA 2016 – Lend Me a Tenor The Musical

The riotous tale of mistaken identities and unexpected romance explodes in this musical comedy based on the Tony award nominated play.

It’s 1934 and Opera virtuoso Tito Merelli (Darrell White) is about to revive Otello for the ten-year anniversary of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company. When Tito becomes unexpectedly incapacitated, a suitable replacement must be found. Max (AJ Longhurst), Henry Saunders (Scott Bateman) sheepish assistant, is charged with the daunting task of finding a suitable replacement. Who is cavalier enough to replace him? With the help of a menacing soprano (Stephanie Zukowski), a tenor-struck ingénue (Brekken Baker), a jealous wife (Erin Kranz), and the Cleveland Police department, mayhem, lunacy and shear panic ensue, but in the end the show must always go on.
