Tap your toes and sing along in this splashy adaptation of the celebrated and beloved film.
The "Greatest Movie Musical of All Time" is faithfully and lovingly adapted by Broadway legends Betty Comden and Adolph Green from their original award-winning screenplay in Singin' In The Rain. Each unforgettable scene, song, and dance is accounted for, including the show-stopping title number, complete with an onstage rainstorm! Hilarious situations, snappy dialogue, and a hit-parade score of Hollywood standards make Singin' In The Rain the perfect entertainment for any fan of the golden age of movie musicals.
Singin' In The Rain hasall the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline - the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers! In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item, but behind the scenes things aren't always as they appear on the big screen! Meanwhile, Lina's squeaky voice might be the end of her career in "talking pictures" without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her.
Filled with every memorable moment from the film and a downpour of unforgettable songs, Singin' In The Rainis a guaranteed hit for any theatre. The technical elements can be challenging, but well worth the effort when the audience is left leaping to their feet. Three extrodinary roles for dancers and a tour de force comedic turn make this a perfect choice for any theatre with an abundance of talent ready to shine.
