Hatrix theatre  is excited to present a new Ken Ludwig comedy “A Comedy of Tenors, May 24-26 at the Eagles Hall. And they are hoping you will join them on stage.
 So get to auditions at Casa, Jan. 23  from 7-9 p.m.

 The 2015 play is the unofficial sequel to Ludwig’s hit comedy  “Lend me a Tenor,” which features a few of the same characters including dogsbody Max, who has become a famous tenor himself in the ensuing 10 years since  the antics of Lend Me  A Tenor. So his his neurotic mentor and boss Saunders.

And famous tenor Tito Morelli and his ever feuding wife  Maria return also.

 This time you get to meet Tito’s doppleganger.
“ Ken Ludwig combines his love of Shakespeare and opera in A Comedy of Tenors,” observed director Karolyn Harker, noting you don’t need to know anything about either one of them to audition for the show. You don’t even need to know how to sing.
“We’ll probably order a tape, but if you can, that would be great. But we don’t want that to stop you from auditioning,” Harker continued.

“ There are mistaken identities as they prepare for a big concert at the end of the show,” she said.


 three men and three women are needed for the cast. The actor playing Tito will be doing double duty as he will also be playing his doppleganger.

“ It is a challenging part,” she said.

 The play runs for three days, May 24-26 plus a Saturday afternoon matinee.
 Rehearsals will begin in February.
