Saunders, the general manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company, is set to welcome world famous Tito Morelli, the greatest tenor of his era, to appear for one night only as Otello. The star arrives late, and following a series of hilarious mishaps, is given a double dose of tranquilizers and passes out. Saunders convinces his assistant Max to put on Morelli’s costume and fool the audience into believing they are seeing the star. Max succeeds, but Morelli comes to and puts on his other costume ready to perform. Hilarity ensues!

TENDERLY: THE ROSEMARY CLOONEY MUSICAL
AT OLD LOG THEATRE - Excelsior, MN
WEDNESDAY, MAY 8
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 5
LEAVE THE MAPLEWOOD PARKS AND RECREATION OFFICE AT 11:00AM AND RETURN BETWEEN 4:30PM - 5:00PM
Tenderly, the Rosemary Clooney Musical is not a typical “juke-box musical.” It offers a fresh, remarkably personal, and poignant picture of the woman whose unparalleled talent and unbridled personality made her a legend.

In Tenderly, Rosemary Clooney’s journey starts with her simple Maysville, Kentucky childhood and follows her rise to Hollywood stardom. With her signature songs woven in and out, we learn both the story of her successes on film, radio, and TV, as well as her struggles in her personal life – with a career fading during the advent of rock-and-roll and her battles with addiction and depression. Audiences stand and cheer as they rejoice at her triumphant comeback and even more successful career as a jazz singer.

Choose your lunch from these options; braised boneless short ribs, seared pork chop, dill roasted tilapia, or vegetarian pasta dish. Cost is $65.00 (includes transportation, lunch, tax, gratuity, and theater ticket).
