THE MINSTREL PLAYERS ANNOUNCE THEIR SPRING 2011 PRODUCTION!
The Minstrel Players Theatre Company of Northport Village kick off their 2011 Season with a Spring production of Ken Ludwig's classic screw-ball comedy, "Lend Me A Tenor". They are coming off their successful Fall staging of Mr. Ludwig's, "Postmortem". Performances will be over two weekends only on Saturday, April 2nd and 9th at 8 P.M. and Sunday, 3 P.M. matinee performances on April 3rd and 10th at Houghton Hall - Trinity Episcopal Church, 130 Main Street in scenic Northport Village.
The production will be directed by Minstrel founding member, Tara Palen, with a cast containing returning Minstrels: Jacqueline Angier, Roseann Baldanza, Evan Donnellan, Shane Fallacara, Ray Palen and Patty Servidio, along with Minstrel newcomers: Martin Edmond and Tricia Ieronimo. The 'World Class' crew is rounded out with Robert Cashman - Technical Director, Debbie Palen - Assistant Director, Andrew Schild - Stage Manager and Bernie Caprera - Lighting Director. "Lend Me A Tenor" takes place in September 1934 on the biggest night ever for the Cleveland Grand Opera Company as they await the world famous tenor, Tito Morelli. Morelli is to play Otello at the gala season opener but instead, arrives late, is given a double dose of tranquilizers mixed with booze and passes out. It is up to the General Manager's assistant, Max, to pretend to be Tito "Il Stupendo" Morelli and go on with the show. Only when the real Morelli wakes up and gets dressed for the performance do the fireworks really begin. A wild time is guaranteed for all as audiences of this great show have been left teary eyed with laughter!
