Lend Me a Tenor

Cody Jenkins stars as Max and Marci Blackwell as Maggie in "Lend Me a Tenor."

Texas State University-San Marcos Department of Theatre and Dance will perform “Lend Me a Tenor” Oct. 2-6 at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 7 at 2 p.m. on the main stage of the Theatre Complex.

Tickets for the performance are $12 for general admission and $7 for students with a valid Texas State ID. Tickets will go on sale beginning Sept. 24 at 10 a.m.

Set in the 1930s, “Lend Me a Tenor” is a madcap, screwball comedy that takes place when Tito Merelli, the fiery-tempered and world famous Italian opera star, arrives in Cleveland, Ohio. When Tito goes missing, the show's producer conspires to cover for Tito's absence, placate his hot-blooded wife and distract his most passionate fans. This Tony-nominated comedy by Ken Ludwig is directed by Richard Sodders and takes farcical chaos to operatic levels.
