Black Hills Community Theatre presents its third mainstage show of its 52nd season, the farce Lend Me a Tenor by Ken Ludwig. It’s 1934, and the world’s greatest tenor Tito Merelli has come to Cleveland, Ohio, to save its Grand Opera Company by singing Pagliacci, The Clown. When he is unexpectedly incapacitated, Max, the Opera Director’s meek assistant, is given the daunting task of finding a last-minute replacement. Chaos ensues – including a scheming soprano, a star-struck ingénue, a jealous wife, and more than a bit of mistaken identity.

Lend Me a Tenor is directed by Ryan Puffer. The cast features Spencer Crawford as Max, Cassidy Manley as Maggie, Zach Curtis as Henry Saunders, Jason Knox as Tito Merelli, Stephanie Reed as Maria, Kyle Graves as the Bellhop, Leslie Hencke Villa as Diana and Holly Godber as Julia.
