    'Lend Me a Tenor'

    Tools

    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.

    Vergennes’ Northern Daughters Gallery presents “Suspended Moments,” a selection of soft and fluttery abstract canvases by the Massachusetts-based painter. “I use mark-making to express the constantly moving, changing and morphing of life and nature,” Schmitz says, “leaving observers certain that they are witnessing merely a fleeting moment in time.” Characterized by a soft palette and a sense of gentle motion, this exhibition is just in time for spring. at Northern Daughters in Vergennes.
