“Lend Me A Tenor” Play by Ken Ludwig
Misericordia Players Theater
Synopsis: It is 1934 and the world’s greatest tenor Tito Merelli has come to Cleveland, Ohio, to save its Grand Opera Company by singing Othello. When he is unexpectedly incapacitated, Max, the opera director’s meek assistant, is given the daunting task of finding a last-minute replacement. Chaos ensues – including a scheming soprano, a
tenor-struck ingénue, a jealous wife and the Cleveland police department.

Christmas with the Tufts Beelzebubs
As Tufts University’s oldest all-male a cappella group, the Beelzebubs have always been at the forefront of contemporary a cappella. The Bubs gave voice to The Warblers on Fox’s Glee and performed hits like “Magical Mystery Tour”, “Right Round” and “Sweet Caroline” on NBC’s The Sing-Off. Though their repertoire is stylistically diverse, ranging from Rock to Pop to Hip Hop, one thing about them is clear. Whether
performing for preschoolers or presidents, the Bubs have lived true to their motto, bringing “Fun Through Song” to the world since 1963. Visit the Bubs at http://www.bubs.com to see more about these talented vocalists!
Special guest appearance on stage will be our award-winning, all-women a cappella group, Beyond Harmony!!
Let’s sing some Christmas into our hearts!
