    Sat., April 29, 7:30 p.m., Sun., April 30, 2 p.m., Fri., May 5, 7:30 p.m., Sat., May 6, 7:30 p.m. and Sun., May 7, 2 p.m.

    A case of mistaken identity leads to over-the-top antics in Ken Ludwig’s sidesplitting farce Lend Me a Tenor, staged by QNEK Productions. When a series of mishaps leads to world-famous singer Tito Merelli receiving a double dose of tranquilizer, an opera company assistant dons the crooner’s costume and passes himself off as the music man. Merelli emerges from his tranquilizer haze and, naturally, high jinks ensue. Under direction from Jenny Dunne, a cast of local talent opens the award-winning theater company’s 25th and final season with this madcap comedy that is sure to have audience members singing its praises. at Haskell Free Library & Opera House in Derby Line. Northeast Kingdom (map). $7-15.

    Sat., April 29, 9:30 a.m.

    Springtime in Vermont means many things: waterfront walks on Lake Champlain, hikes up Camel’s Hump and trips to the local creemee stand, to name a few. For cyclists, it’s time for Onion River Sports’ annual Muddy Onion Spring Classic Gravel Ride. Adventurous athletes get back in the saddle and spin their wheels on a fully supported 35.4-mile course snaking along central Vermont’s scenic back roads. If that distance seems a bit ambitious for an early-season excursion, perhaps you’ll try the newly added Hibernator Short Loop, which covers 19.4 miles of ground. No matter which leg-burning route participants choose, they’ll be rewarded with a post-ride barbecue complete with stick-to-your-ribs fare and Harpoon Brewery beer. at Onion River Sports in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map). $45-60.
