March 22-24; March 28-31, 2019
One of America’s most popular farces, LEND ME A TENOR starts naturally enough: the Cleveland Opera will highlight this season with one performance by world-famous Tito Merelli—simply everyone will be there. However, Tito shows up with personal reasons to be upset; and in order to calm him, Max helps him out with a tranquilizer—or two. And before you know it, shy Max finds himself in opera disguise to sing Tito’s role. Can he pull it off? Combine that with lingerie-clad ladies hiding in closets in order not be revealed to the press and you have a door-slamming, audience pleasing frolic. Ages 16 and up.
Performances: Thursday – Saturday: 7:30 PM; Sundays: 3 PM
My name is Taylor Boes, and I am a BFA Theatre Performance student at the University of Michigan-Flint on track to graduate in December 2018. Over the past few years, I have discovered a passion for all things Theatre: particularly performance, stage management, directing, and playwriting. My most recent production at UMF, The Fantasticks, closed in January and I was given the challenge of playing Hucklebee. I would have to say that my favorite role, however, was Miss Prism in The Importance of Being Earnest. I have worked as a stage manager multiple times at UMF, most recently for As You Like It and Next to Normal, and I have also stage managed at Flint Youth Theatre. I enjoy writing plays and short stories, and in April 2018 a short play I wrote was featured at UMF’s annual student-run Short Play Festival. I value laughter as the most universal unifying element humanity has, and I am incredibly excited to make my directorial debut with Lend Me a Tenor at Bay City Players.
