CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Singin' in the Rain
Tour synopsis, cast & creatives
Its 1927, the dawn of the age of sound in Hollywood, silent screen stars Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are the world's most famous (and consequently valuable) on-screen romantic couple. Off-screen, however, is a different story. Whilst the slightly dumb Lina mistakes the on-screen romance for real love, Don has no such interest. Don has worked hard, for many years, to get where he is today, with his former vaudeville partner Cosmo who provides the piano accompaniment to his silent antics in the studio. When Don and Lina's latest film is transformed, by the need for sound, into a musical, Don has the perfect singing voice but Lina cannot possibly be allowed to be heard - she has the perfect voice for an oil painting despite all the studio's efforts. Meanwhile, Don has fallen for clumsy aspiring actress Kathy Selden who doesn't seem to be won over by his stardom but who comes up with what seems like a perfect, if crazy, plan to save the picture. Containing some fabulous songs and some trully memorable dance sequences this is a real Hollywood feelgood story.
Between 8th June 2020 and 15th May 2021 this tour will visit 10 venues in Dunfermline, Canterbury, Newcastle upon Tyne, Nottingham, Leeds, Edinburgh, Southend-on-Sea, Birmingham, Cardiff and Aberdeen. Current and future dates only.
