3) Dinner and Show

Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre starts off its new season on the right note as it presents Lend Me A Tenor, the Ken Ludwig comedy marking its 25th Anniversary in 2014.

This Tony Award-winning madcap farce was called “uproarious” and “hysterical” by USA Today, and is sure to have you pealing with laughter!

Lend Me A Tenor is set in Cleveland in 1934 where the world-famous tenor Tito Morelli is scheduled to perform as Otello. But he arrives late and, through a series of mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers!

Lend Me A Tenor is on stage for 36 performances through Feb. 2. Tickets range from $38.50 to $63.50 and include Chef Odell Ward’s dinner buffet, prepared in-house for each performance, and select beverages. Parking is always free.

For reservations, call the Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre Box Office at 317-872-9664 anytime between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays. Discounts are available to groups of 20 or more. Contact the Group Sales Department for more details.
