WYO Gala to feature ‘Lend Me a Tenor’ @ WYO Theater
Oct 22 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The WYO Gala will present “Lend Me a Tenor the Musical” on Saturday, with gala festivities beginning at 5 p.m.

In the play, it’s 1934 and Opera virtuoso Tito Merelli is about to revive Otello for the 10-year anniversary of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company.

When Tito becomes unexpectedly incapacitated, a suitable replacement must be found. Max, Hendry Sanders sheepish assistant, is charged with the daunting task of finding a suitable replacement. Who is cavalier enough to replace him?

With the help of a menacing soprano, a tenor-struck ingénue, a jealous wife and the Cleveland Police Department, mayhem, lunacy and shear panic ensue, but in the end the show must go on.

Doors open and the silent auction will begin at 5 p.m. at the WYO Theater. Hors d’oeuvres and cocktails start at 5:30 p.m. at Frackelton’s Fine Food and Spirits. The curtain will raise at 7 p.m. at WYO Theater.

The event is a costume party, so attendees are encouraged to dress accordingly.

Tickets are $103.50 per person or special pricing is available for groups of 10 or more. Tickets may be purchased at the theater box office or online at

The WYO Theater is located at 42 N. Main St.
