Singin’ in the Rain – CANCELED

Silent movies are out. “Talkies” are in! Unfortunately for famed movie star Don Lockwood, his leading lady’s comically harsh and squeaky voice is ill-suited for the switch. When their next film is converted into a talking picture, the studio must bring in aspiring actress Kathy Selden to voice all of its female star’s speaking and singing parts. Sparks fly between Kathy and Don in this charming love story that will give everyone the same glorious feeling they get when singing in the rain.

Performance Times:
7:30 PM Wednesdays through Saturdays; 2:00 PM Sundays
Theatre:
John Viars Theatre
Run Time:
2 hours 25 minutes including a 15-minute intermission
