Tenor prepares for encore at Pendragon

SARANAC LAKE Lend Me a Tenor returns for a limited engagement to Pendragon Theatre on Friday, Oct. 5 at 8 p.m. It will play through Sunday night (all performances at 8 p.m.). Directed by Bonnie B. Brewer, Lend Me A Tenor promises to have you laughing out loud, while simultaneously trying to keep track of the fast-paced, side-splitting, door slamming antics.

On its Broadway debut in March 1989 Ken Ludwigs Lend Me A Tenor was hailed by reviewers in the New York Times, Variety and other publications as one of the funniest comedies to appear in many years.

The cast is a familiar blend of Company members from seasons past: Ellen Joffred is Maggie (the young girl in search of romance and bells), Joe McLaughlin is Max (the young hopeful male opera star), Chris McGovern is Saunders (the excitable manager of the opera), Bob Pettee is Tito (Il Stupendo, opera star extraordinaire), Kim Andresen Patnode is Maria (Titos feisty Italian wife), Clare Paulson is the Bellhop (one mission: meet Tito!), Molly Walsh is Diana (opera diva looking to better her career), Binnie Ritchie Holum rounds out the cast as Julia (head of the opera guild).

Tickets are $20 for adults, $16 for seniors, $10 for students 17 and under. For more information or reservations for any of Pendragons upcoming events, contact the Theatre at (518) 891-1854, or visit online at www.pendragontheatre.org . All programs are subject to change.
