2 weekends of shows: Dates are March 4th 5th and 6th and 11th 12th and 13th



The Play - Lend Me A Tenor


Taking Place in a Hotel Suite in Cleveland Ohio in 1934 on a very important night for the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, everything must go smoothly. A world famous Italian tenor, Tito Mirelli, is set to perform the starring role in Othello. Things DO NOT go smoothly in this comedic slapstick farce!!  



There are 8 parts!! 4 Men and 4 Women. 


Henry Saunders – The Cleveland Grand Opera's general manager. Father to Maggie. A blowhard who often loses his temper at the slightest mishap.


Max – Saunders' long-suffering assistant and Maggie's suitor, forced to take Tito's place in the role of Othello.


Maggie Saunders – Saunders' daughter, and Max's girlfriend. She has a great admiration for Tito.


Tito Merelli – The world's most renowned opera tenor, and notorious ladies man.


Maria – Tito's long-suffering wife, with an "Italian temper". Leaves Tito early in the play, but ultimately returns to him. Loves Tito, despite his philandering.


Diana – The opera's ingenue soprano, who is "flinging her way" to the top. A seductive woman (and she knows it).


Julia – Chairwoman of the Cleveland Opera Guild, who considers herself a "grande dame." She wears a silver dress which, Saunders says, makes her look "like the Chrysler Building."


The Bellhop – A comic relief character who has an ongoing feud with Saunders. An obnoxious opera fan, the bellhop keeps showing up at the hotel suite at the wrong moment, trying to get an autograph and a photo of Tito Merelli.

One Stage At A Time

Picnic Theater! 

Enjoy a picnic in Sylvan Park and be entertained!
On July 31 at 6:00 p.m. and August 1 at 1:00 p.m.
Lanesboro Community Theater will present three one-act plays,
interspersed with lively music from Sister LUV,
a reading about a man almost going over our own Lanesboro Dam,
jokes, a sing-a-long, an appearance by Ole and Lars and other surprises. 
Bring your own picnic, settle in on your socially distanced blanket,
and savor the show while you dine. Come prepared to laugh, sing,
and feel the way theater helps us share the intensity of life.
In the event of rain, the show will go on at Discovery Church,
just across the street from Sylvan Park.

!!!ONE STAGE AT A TIME!!!

 One Stage at a Time!

One-Acts, Monologues and Music on a Sylvan Park evening at the end of July.
Lanesboro Community Theater is considering something like this for our 2021 summer performance. Following health protocols for minimum contact, the short one-acts would be one or two people who would be rehearsing in their own groupings. The musical groups would be families or bands who rehearse together on a regular basis. The one-act groups and musical groups would then come together to rehearse during the last week before the performances. We'll put up a stage in Sylvan and people can bring lawn chairs and blankets. Good way for us to begin to come together again?
OR ..... How about movies in the park on August Friday nights?
OR ..... silent movies?
OR ..... any burning ideas?
Let  us know.

Our Summer Musical, "The Sound of Music" is cancelled

Dear Friends,

Due to the Covid-19 Stay-at-Home order and the challenges it presents, it is with a saddened heart that the LCT Board has decided to suspend our summer musical at this time.  We feel it is in the best interests of the health and safety of our volunteers and community and wish to do what is responsible to shorten the hold this virus has on our nation.  

We are hopeful that we will be able to present THE SOUND OF MUSIC as our Summer 2021 production.  Thank you so much for your loyalty, support and understanding, and we look forward to seeing you in the audience next year!  

In the meantime, we wish you all continued health, light, and love.

From the Director: "Everyone did such marvelous work during the auditions. There was such a wonderful openness and freedom displayed in the theater games and such a range of character readings.

Congratulations to all!
