A Comedy of Tenors
November 7, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - November 23, 2019 @ 8:00 pm$10 – $24
Rover Dramawerks concludes their 19th Season with the farce A Comedy of Tenors by Ken Ludwig. This hilarious sequel to Mr. Ludwig’s oft-produced Lend Me a Tenor will be at Rover’s theatre in Plano, located in Ruisseau Village at 221 W. Parker Rd, Suite 580, at the northwest corner of Parker and 75. Performances run November 7-23 on Thursdays and Fridays at 8:00 p.m. and on Saturdays at 3:00 and 8:00 p.m.
One hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans. What could possibly go wrong? It’s 1930s Paris and the stage is set for the concert of the century – as long as producer Henry Saunders (played by Kenneth Fulenwider) can keep Italian superstar Tito Merelli (Robert San Juan) and his hot-blooded wife Maria (Heather Walker Shin) from causing runaway chaos. It’s an uproarious ride, full of mistaken identities, bedroom hijinks, and madcap delight. Rounding out the ensemble cast are Danielle Elliott, Eddy Herring, Steven Pedro, and Samantha Pettigrew.
Penny Elaine serves as director, with Joshua Secor as stage manager. Set design is by Eddy Herring with construction by Kyle Chinn and scenic painting by Kasey Bush. Lighting and sound design is by Kenneth Hall. Sakura Brunette is costume designer, and props are by Maddy Turner.
Thursday, November 7 is Preview Night, with all seats $10.00 in advance online or “pay-what-you-can” at the door.
