Alexandria Area Arts is delighted to present this hilarious knee-slapping comedy. Set in September 1934, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company is primed to welcome the world famous Tito Morelli, Il Stupendo (the greatest tenor of his generation) to appear for one night only as Otello. The star arrives late and, through a hilarious series of mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant Max believe he’s dead. In a frantic attempt to salvage the evening, Saunders persuades Max to get into Morelli’s Otello costume and fool the audience into thinking he’s Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but Morelli comes to and gets into his other costume ready to perform. Now two Otellos are running around in costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo.
Before television, radio variety shows were one of the primary sources of entertainment. This tradition is alive in Alexandria! Located on the shores of Lakes Geneva, Lakes Area Radio Theatre records ”old time” radio shows. Live music, their own sound effects and lively actors help bring the stories to life. Enjoy 2 radio show comedies, “Phoebe & Maude” and “The Bickersons”, with this special discount package!
Admission to the intriguing Runestone Museum is included in this package! Discover dozens of beautiful exhibits, the historic Fort Alexandria and see the famous Kensington Runestone which illustrates why Alexandria, MN is considered the Birthplace of America! Conveniently located in Downtown, visit the museum and stroll the Downtown shops at your leisure until your dinner is ready!
Also included in the package price, a delicious meal at Bello Cucina! Eat to your heart’s content with “The Bello’s Special,” an exclusive pasta bar which will include multiple pastas, salad and garlic toast. A perfect setting and atmosphere to get ready for the evening’s theatre production!
