Clonmel Theatre Guild launches it’s 50th Season with our dinner theatre production of Ken Ludwig’s hilarious comedy “Lend me a Tenor”. Directed by Sarah Finnegan, it will be staged in Raheen House Hotel on 4th-7th December 2018.

“Lend Me A Tenor” sees Henry Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company,  primed to welcome world famous, Tito Morelli, Il Stupendo, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as Otello.

The star arrives late and, through a hilarious series of mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant Max believe he’s dead. In a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, Saunders persuades Max to get into Morelli’s Otello costume and fool the audience into thinking he’s Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but Morelli comes to and gets into his other costume ready to perform. Now two Otellos are running around in costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo. This madcap, screwball comedy is guaranteed to leave audiences teary-eyed with laughter.

There is a wonderful strong cast of new and well known members of the guild. They are:-
Henry Saunders – Ricky Dunne
Max – David McEvoy
Maggie Saunders – Blathnaid Moore
Tito Morelli – Edmond Ryan
Maria – Patricia Harte
Diana – Esther Byrne
Julia – Carol Acheson
The Bellhop – Hugh Hennessy
