RUNWAY Theatre Co are treading the boards again and looking for singers aged 16 and over for principal and chorus roles.

Lend Me a Tenor will be staged at Eastwood Park Theatre — and true to form, the southside group are responsible for the Scottish amateur premiere.

The musical is a comedy of mistaken identity and unexpected romance, as legendary tenor Tito Merelli arrives in Cleveland, Ohio, to save its Grand Opera Company. When he’s unexpectedly incapacitated, it follows to meek assistant Max to put the show on — and chaos ensues.

Male and female singers are needed, and anyone interested is asked to attend auditions on Thursday, January 30, 7.30pm at Clincarthill chuch hall, Battlefield — please bring a song of your choice and sheet music or accompaniment.

Booking is open for tickets to show, running May 21-24, through susan@runwaytheatre.co.uk.
