“… comic opera comes to Copake with The Of Us Productions! ”


CRARYVILLE, NY --The Two Of Us Productions, the award winning theater company based in Columbia County NY, is pleased to present LEND ME A TENOR by Kenneth Ludwig, May 18th through May 27th, 2017 at The Theater at The Grange in Copake NY.    

World-renowned tenor Tito Merelli has signed on to play Otello at a Cleveland opera company in the fall of 1934. He arrives late to his hotel and, through a set of crazy circumstances, passes out on his bed after mixing wine with a large dose of tranquilizers. Believing that the comatose opera star is dead, the excitable opera manager Mr.Saunders convinces his hapless assistant, an aspiring singer named Max, to suit up in an Otello costume & replace Merelli at tonight’s gala performance. Meanwhile, the Merelli’s jealous wife Maria, his ambitious female co-star Diana, Max’s young girlfriend Maggie, the flirtatious head of the opera guild Julia, and even the hotel’s singing bellhop are on the scene fighting—sometimes literally—for the opera star’s attention.

Set in a 1930’s Chicago hotel room, LEND ME A TENOR features many local stage favorites and some talented new faces.  Tito & Maria Merelli are played by Mark Leinung & Constance Lopez.  The role of Mr. Saunders is played by Frank Leavitt, and his daughter Maggie is played by Karissa Payton.  Max, the all round assistant & aspiring opera singer is played by Hunter Anderson.  Cyndi Miller plays the ambitious operatic soprano Diana, Diane Boice-Yorck plays opera guild head Julia, and Josh Gurwitz plays the hotel’s operatic bellhop. 

Performances of LEND ME A TENOR are 2 weekends only – May 18th, 19th & 20th 2018,  and the following weekend of May 25th, 25th & 27th, 2018.  Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30pm and Sunday matinees are at 3pm.  The comfortable & intimate Theater at The Grange is located at The Copake Grange, on Empire Road in downtown Copake NY across from the Clocktower Pub.  Tickets are $20 for adults, $14 for students & seniors, and $12 for groups & families.  For advance reservations visit or call 518-758-1648.
