RLT announces an open audition for what is considered America’s greatest farce: Ken Ludwig’s Lend Me a Tenor.
We seek men and woman from 18 to 70 to inhabit a variety of roles from a crazed bellhop to opera Diva’s, tenors, and overdone opera managers (some Opera singing may be expected of a couple of roles, but being good at it is not that important).
Join the craziness that occurs when the world’s greatest Italian tenor and his long suffering wife come to Cleveland for a sold out performance. His fame as a singer and lover are great and he soon encounters several groupies and then suffers an ill conceived overdose of booze and pills. Confronting the corpse the Opera’s impresario and is young assistant have to figure out how to solve the problem of a sold out show that they desperately need to succeede–perhaps the young assistant can go on as the tenor? Yet now there are two tenors running around as maybe the Italian one isn’t dead? And what about the girl in her underwear in the closet? Ok some one has got to go to jail–right? Or will the audience riot over the imposter? Many misunderstandings, misidentifications, low notes and high hilarity later we have a resolution–or do we? I give up!
Join the fun as we will have open auditions at 630-10 on Sunday night January 26th in our main theater, and then by appointment only call backs the next night. For more information and an actor packet please contact Doug at firstname.lastname@example.org
