PUTNAM VALLEY, N.Y. -- "Lend Me A Tenor" opens this weekend in Putnam Valley.

The Putnam Valley High School TheatreWorks presentation runs Friday, Nov. 4 to Sunday, Nov. 6 in the school's  Performing Arts Center.

The play

On a very important night for the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, Tito Mirelli, the world-famous Italian tenor, is set to perform the starring role in Otello. Henry Saunders, General Manager of the company,  is beyond stressed about everything turning out right, and insists that his assistant, Max, a nervous, young fellow and secret tenor extraordinaire, watch over Tito’s every move to ensure smooth sailing.

After a huge fight with his fiery, Italian wife Maria, Tito receives a double dose of tranquilizers through a series of mishaps. Throw in Diana, an ambitious, female co-star; Maggie, Max’s giddy girlfriend; Julia, a flirty head of the opera guild; and a meddling bellhop fighting for Tito’s attention; together, a recipe for comedic disaster.

Max navigates the company through one catastrophe after the next, an angry wife, a presumed death, crazy costumes, and loads and loads of slamming doors and mistaken identities, and, ultimately, takes on the role of Otello to great effect.

Together, Max and Saunders find a way to somehow save the opera company’s big night.

The performance schedule is Friday, Nov. 4 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 6 at 2 p.m. at the center, 146 Peekskill Hollow Road, Putnam Valley, N.Y.

Tickets are $12 for adults, $6 for senior citizens and students 18 and under at pvcsd.org .
