The Stratford Playhouse is presenting three more performances of “Lend Me a Tenor.” For eight dollars, students can see this farce about romance and confusion at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday and Saturday and at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.

“[‘Lend Me a Tenor’ is] a fast-paced comedy that keeps you on the edge of your seat,” junior Janet Hagedorn, the student director said. “Even if you aren’t typically a fan of comedies like this, the show will make you laugh.”

Hagedorn said the show stays enjoyable for her because the actors keep the jokes fresh.

“The cast has been making me laugh every day, which can be difficult when you’ve been reading the same jokes since May,” Hagedorn said. “Each audience is different and has a different reaction from the actors, and it is new every show.”

After over a month of work, Hagedorn said she is glad to see the company’s efforts paying off.

“The actors have worked so hard, and hearing the audience burst out laughing at their jokes has been one of the most rewarding experiences ever,” Hagedorn said. “They have mastered the timing of this show, which is impeccable, and I highly suggest everybody and anybody come see it.”

“Lend Me a Tenor” is performed by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
