View a trailer for the Providence College production of Lend Me a Tenor.
Providence, R.I.--Tickets are on sale for performances of the classic period comedy Lend Me a Tenor, which is being presented by Providence College’s Department of Theatre, Dance, and Film on the weekends of January 27 to January 29 and February 3 to February 5.
Friday and Saturday shows start at 8:00 p.m. at the Angell Blackfriars Theatre in the Smith Center for the Arts; on Sundays, performances begin at 2:00 p.m.
Set in the 1930s, Lend Me a Tenor centers on an opera manager's nightmare --- five minutes to curtain and the tenor is unable to take the stage. Written by Ken Ludwig, this farce of mistaken identity, jealousy, and rumor was nominated for seven Tony Awards after its premier on Broadway. It has been called “true comic delirium” by Charles Isherwood of The New York Times.
The production’s cast consists of eight student actors, and 10 students serve as crew members during performances. In addition, more than 25 students built scenery and costumes for the production and worked on publicity and in the box office.
Lend Me a Tenor is one of three mainstage plays performed at the Smith Center for the Arts every year, in addition to two dance concerts and several student-led productions.
