The Harp Players and Washington Community Theater will present "Lend Me a Tenor" at the Community Center, at 7:30 p.m. March 7, 8, 14 and 15.

Winner of three Tony Awards and four Drama Desk Awards, "Lend Me A Tenor" is set in 1934. Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company is ready to welcome world-famous Tito Merelli, the greatest tenor of his generation, to appear for one night only as Otello. The star arrives late and through a hilarious series of mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. Saunders and his assistant Max, believe he’s dead, and plan a substitution. It’s a funny romp, guaranteed to leave the audience teary-eyed with laughter.

The play is not recommended for children.

Proceeds will benefit the Washington Enrichment Foundation.

Tickets are available by calling the box office at 319-653-5175.
