Singin’ in the Rain

A smash-hit at Chichester Festival Theatre, in the West End and most recently at London’s Sadler’s Wells, Jonathan Church’s critically acclaimed production of Singin’ in the Rain is back and on tour across the UK this year.

Sam Lips, Charlotte Gooch, Ross McLaren and Jenny Gayner star in this classic musical and will be joined at selected venues by special guests Faye Tozer as Lina Lamont (Canterbury, Woking, Milton Keynes, Edinburgh, Newcastle), and Kevin Clifton as Cosmo Brown (Bristol, Cardiff, Southampton, Liverpool, Glasgow).

Don Lockwood is a silent movie star with everything he could want – fame, adulation and a well-publicised ‘romance’ with his co-star Lina Lamont. But Hollywood is about to change forever. There is a rumour in the studio that a new kind of film, where the actors actually talk … and sing … and dance. Can Don and the uniquely voiced Lina make the transition, and will chorus girl Kathy Seldon fulfil her dream of stardom and capture Don’s heart along the way?

Singin’ in the Rain features songs by Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed, including Make ‘em Laugh, Good Morning, Moses Supposes and Singin’ in the Rain. Original screenplay and adaptations are by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. The production is designed by Simon Higlett, with lighting by Tim Mitchell.

The stage production of Singin’ in the Rain is based on the classic Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film, regularly voted the most popular film musical of all time.
