Lend Me a Tenor

At The Murray Theatre At Ruth Eckerd Hall

Thursday Through Saturday,

Hat Trick Theatre Productions presents Lend Me a Tenor at the Murray Theatre at Ruth Eckerd Hall Thursday through Saturday, February 2-12 at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 3 pm. Tickets are on sale now.

Lend Me A Tenor Written by Ken Ludwig, the story takes place on the biggest night in the history of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company. The world-famous tenor, Tito Merelli, is to perform his greatest role at the 10-year anniversary gala season opener. Henry Saunders, the opera’s executive director, has high hopes that Merelli’s performance will put Cleveland on the operatic map. Through a series of comedic mix-ups, Merelli is drugged and mistaken for dead! Saunders is in a panic and, along with his assistant Max, they scramble to keep the show going, hide the “body” and find another tenor. Doors will slam, identities will be mistaken, pants will fall and your sides will ache from laughter!

Laughing Stock will be directed by Jack Holloway. Holloway has been teaching, directing and acting in the Bay Area for over a decade and is a multiple Creative Loafing “Best of the Bay” award winner in Acting, Directing, Best Comedic Performance and Best Use of Grant Money.  He also won first place in the National Society of Arts and Letters acting competition in 2009. Past directorial credits include:  Deathtrap: A Thriller in Two Acts, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), Proof, William Shakespeare’s Land of the Dead, Rumors, Funny Money, Unnecessary Farce and The Pavilion.  He currently serves as the Drama Department Chair at the Marcia P. Hoffman School of the Arts at Ruth Eckerd Hall, the Artistic Director of Hat Trick Theatre and serves as an Associate Artistic Director for the Tampa Bay Shakespeare Festival

A complete cast listing for the show is below.
