Lend Me A Tenor is a madcap comedy that takes place in 1934 as the Cleveland Grand Opera company prepares to welcome world-famous tenor Tito Merelli for a sold out, one night only performance. It's all downhill from there. What transpires is an hilarious farce full of mistaken identity, slamming doors, and bawdy humor.

Join us for an evening or afternoon filled with farce and side splitting hilarity!

Tickets are $20 Adults & $17 Seniors and Children. Tickets available online.
Black Cat Theatre presents A LITTLE QUICKIE
by Jane Milmore and Billy Van Zandt, directed by Tony Jones

Granby Jr/Sr High School (385 East State St (Route 202), Granby).

The stand up comedy team of Steve and Allen is on the brink of success when Steve's neglected wife Sara and Allen have an unexpected fling, a lifelong dream come true for Allen. Flashy manager Roscoe Clementine who narrates, his latest pickup Polly, and a New York fashion model become involved in covering up the infidelity. The play is interspersed with bits of Steve and Allen's routine which provide a hilarious running commentary on the actions. 

Rated M for Mature! General Admission is $15.00, $12.00 for Seniors/Students, and all Military (active or retired) are admitted free. For ticket reservations email or call 413-563-6023.

Profits from our shows help to support an annual scholarship to a South Hadley High School or Granby High School student going on to college to major in the arts.

New Century Theatre presents SEMINAR
by Theresa Rebeck 
directed by Maggie Miller
June 18-27
Theatre 14, Mendenhall Center for the Performing Arts, Smith College

NCT opens its twenty-fifth season with new comedy, by a Pulitzer Prize nominee, that critics hail as one of Rebeck’s best works with big laughs. Four young and aspiring novelists with high hopes for fame sign up for private writing lessons with Leonard – a best-selling author and international literary figure.  His unorthodox instruction and shockingly honest assessment gives them the schooling of their lives. The New Yorker calls SEMINAR “Slick and satisfying.” We call SEMINAR the perfect opener in our 25th Anniversary season.

Tickets are available online or by calling 413-585-3220 after June 2.
