Dedham Players are going to the Opera!

Lend Me A Tenor tells the story of the opening night of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company benefit gala to be attended by the world renown Italian Tenor, Tito Merelli.

Set in 1934 Ohio, the Opera company have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Tito - but where is he? He is in no hurry to prepare for his performance as Otello as he is not feeling too well and after one tranquilliser or two too many he passes out - or is he dead? What follows makes for an entertaining evening and one, which had critics writing “..guaranteed to leave the audience teary-eyed with laughter”.

Lend Me A Tenor is the winner of 3 Tony Awards and 4 Drama Desk Awards. The Times wrote “A remarkable piece of theatre … a masterpiece..”. “Fills the theatre with the sound of laughter” said the Sunday Express.
