Stage Door Players, Dunwoody’s only professional theatre company, presents Lend Me A Tenor by Ken Ludwi, opening May 18 and running through June 10. Showtimes are Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. with a Sunday matinee at 2:30 p.m.

The time is September, 1934. The place is the Cleveland Grand Opera Company. World famous tenor Tito Morelli is to perform Otello, his greatest role, at the gala season opener. Through a hilarious series of mishaps and a double dose of tranquilizers, he passes out and is nowhere to be found. Is Il Stupendo dead? Who will go in his place? Considered by some to be one of the greatest farces ever written, this one will have you rolling in the aisles.

Featuring Charlie Bradshaw, Mark Gray, Megan Hayes, Eliana Marianes, John Markowski, Larry Ruth, Kelly Chapin Schmidt, and Karen Whitaker, the show is directed by Robert Egizio.

The design team includes Jim Alford (Costume Design), Dan Bauman (Sound Design), George Deavours (Wig Design), John David Williams (Lighting Design), and Chuck Welcome (Scenic Design). The show is Stage Managed by Hampton Whatley.
