Singin' in the Rain is currently taking bookings at the Palace Theatre to 1 September 2013.
The current cast is led by Adam Cooper as Don Lockwood, Daniel Crossley as CosMo Brown, Scarlett Strallen as Kathy Selden and Katherine Kingsley as Lina Lamont and Sandra Dickinson as Dora Bailey/Miss Dinsmore, all of whom reprise their roles from the original Chichester production. Robert Powell joined the cast of the five star West End production in October as studio boss RF Simpson.
Don Lockwood is a silent movies star with everything he could want - fame, adulation and even a well-publicised 'romance' with his co-star Lina Lamont. But Hollywood is about to change forever. There is rumour in the studio of a new kind of film, where the actors actually talk… and sing... and dance.
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. With choreography by Andrew Wright, the production is designed by Simon Higlett, with sound by Matt McKenzie and lighting by Tim Mitchell.
Singin' in the Rain, which uses half a mile of flexible pipe work, a 10 tonne water tank housed in the orchestra pit and a water system that creates a downpour from above and flooding from below the stage, 'raining' (and recycling) over 14,000 litres of downpour per performance, is produced in the West End by Stage Entertainment UK and Chichester Festival Theatre.
The stage production of Singin' in the Rain is based on the classic Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film and produced by arrangement with Maurice Rosenfield, Lois F Rosenfield and Cindy Pritzker Inc. This production is by special arrangement with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures, Inc. Music Published by EMI.
