Feeling stressed and overwhelmed with schoolwork?
In just a week you can take a break and go see the play "Lend Me a Tenor", performed by the Lyndon State Twilight Players, in the Alexander Twilight Theatre.
"It's that time of year that people need a laugh," says Dave Daly, a cast member in the play. He is confident that the play with be the amusing entertainment that everyone needs.
There will be five performances of the comedy. Opening night is Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. Other show times include Nov. 11 at 7 p.m., Nov. 12 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Nov. 13 at 2 p.m.
With just about a week to go, the cast is looking prepared and confident.
The eight cast members, Dave Daly, Dan Haycook, Jake Machell, Rain Nissen-Reilly, Sarah Warren, Haley Marckres, Dan Rowe, and Samantha Knight have been working extremely hard for the past weeks. They are well prepared and have been rehearsing without a script for about two weeks now.
"We could do the show tonight if we had to," says Daly.
Aside from the cast members, Gianna Fregosi, the director, Naoh Fink, the assistant director, and Nora Barney, the stage manager, have all been working hard to make this play come together.
There were a few challenges that the cast faced throughout production of the play. The play is not a musical, so incorporating music has been a struggle. However, Jake Machell and Dan Haycook have worked together to learn a song that will be sung a cappella.
"Lend Me a Tenor" is a comedy that takes place in 1934. A well-known tenor, Tito Merelli, is scheduled to sing the lead part in a performance put on by the Cleveland Opera Company. Tito and his wife arrive at their hotel room and things begin to fall apart. Tito ends up overdosing on sleeping pills and is thought dead, but the show must go on. To find out what happens with Tito and the rest of the cast, come to the performance.
