The Nenagh Players return to the stage next Tuesday, November 8, with the hilarious comedy, Lend Me A Tenor.

the Players have a number of new faces joining them for their autumn production, with Robbie Glennon taking a step up from the Young Nenagh Players to make his senior debut; Sheila Chadwick, who has perfromed with Lissenhall, joining for this production, along with Geraldine Henchion, Holycross, while Donal Bray takes to the stage for the very first time.

Among the other actors are stalwarts Irene O’Meara, Margaret Walshe and Noel Stanley, while Ciara O’Sullivan makes a welcome return to the stage, having played major roles backstage over the past number of years.

Playwright Ken Ludwwig’s Lend Me A Tenor centres around world class Italian tenor Tito Merelli (Robbie Glennon) making his first visit to the US to play the Cleaveland Opera House. Tito is the larger than life tenor - fiery, with an eye for the females. His nickname is Il Stupendo, but he is late for the show because he has had a little “accident”.

It runs from Tuesday, November 8, to Saturday, November 12, in Nenagh Arts Centre. Tickets, €13, and bookings can be made through DK Travel, Emmet Place, Nenagh; ph: 067-37964. The opening gala night is in aid of Nenagh Special Summer Camp and tickets, €22, include a pre-show reception in Rocky’s.
