Cleveland, 1934. The local opera company is set to present the opera Pagliacci starring a world-famous Italian tenor. He arrives with his wife, a very jealous woman. After a huge fight with her, Tito receives a double dose of tranquilizers. Can he go on as planned? An angry wife, a presumed death, crazy costumes, secret sex romps, and loads of slamming doors. A delightful, farcical comedy!

Saunders & Tito
MAX - Male, 26 to 35
Assistant to the General Manager of the Cleveland Opera. Max has a talent for being underfoot under-appreciated and under ambitious; his voice and ability are much bigger than even he realizes. Ability to sign Opera a plus.
MAGGIE - Female, 21 to 30
Max's girlfriend. Maggie loves Max's sweet ways but has her eyes set on the stars - one star in particular: the world-famous tenor, Tito Morelli.
SAUNDERS - Male, 50 to 65
Maggie's father, General Manager of the Cleveland Opera company and a general blow-hard.
TITO MORELLI - Male, 50+
World famous tenor. Tito has an ego the size of Pavarotti and an appetite for linguini, women, and drink – not necessarily in that order. Ability to sing Opera a plus.
MARIA - Female, 45+
Tito's wife. Maria is a fiery tempered Italian wife who loves Tito, hates travel, really hates other women flirting with her man, and is ready to say "arrivederci" if Tito messes up one more time.
BELLHOP - Male, 18 to 25
Overly-energetic employee of the hotel. An opera fan, eager to please.
DIANA - Female, 30+
A soprano. Diana has huge ambitions and an appetite for tenors.
JULIA - Female, 50+
Chair of the Opera guild. An elegant older woman who wants only the best for Cleveland and the Opera Company she loves.
