MILL HALL - The opening production of the summer in Millbrook Playhouse's Poorman Cabaret Theatre is the comedy "Lend Me a Tenor" by Ken Ludwig.
The show opens Thursday and runs through Sunday, then for a second week Wednesday through Sunday, June 27 through July 1.
Following the hilarious successes of "Love, Sex and the IRS" and "What the Bellhop Saw," director Adam Knight continues his hit comedy streak with one of the top farces on stages today - "Lend Me a Tenor."
Famous opera singer Tito, played by Stephen M. Guice, right, talks with his assistant, played by Matthew Krob, in this scene from the comedy “Lend Me a Tenor,” opening Thursday in the Millbrook Playhouse Poorman Cabaret.
Door-slamming chaos reaches a truly operatic level and laughter abounds in this screwball comedy. A famous opera singer goes missing and the show's hapless assistant has to cover for his absence, soothe his hot-tempered wife and distract his most passionate fans to prevent disaster.
On the Ryan Main Stage, the big-production musical "All Shook Up" continues Wednesday through Sunday this week.
Both shows are family-friendly. Sundays are Family Day at Millbrook, with a discount for two adults with children.
Show times are 7:30 p.m. daily. Also, matinees at 2 p.m. are planned this Wednesday for "All Shook Up" and Sunday, July 1 for "Lend Me a Tenor."
For ticket information and reservations, call the box office at 748-8083 (open Tuesday through Sunday) or visit www.millbrookplayhouse.com.
And, watch for the children's show "Velma Gratch and the Way Cool Butterfly" to open this Saturday at 10 a.m.
