One of the great musical romances, Singin’ in the Rain is set in Hollywood in the last days of the silent screen era. Adapted from the 1952 movie of the same name, the musical features a book by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, lyrics by Arthur Freed, and music by Nacio Herb Brown.
Singin’ in the Rain focuses on romantic lead Don Lockwood, his sidekick Cosmo Brown, aspiring actress Kathy Selden, and Lockwood’s leading lady Lina Lamont, whose less-than-dulcet vocal tones make her an unlikely candidate for stardom in talking pictures.
With all the charm, romance, comedy and glamour of a bygone Hollywood era, Singin’ in the Rain features a glorious score with the classics Good Morning, Make ‘em Laugh, All I Do Is Dream Of You and the legendary Singin’ in the Rain.
Rohan Browne stars as the matinee idol Don Lockwood, Matt Lee is his sidekick Cosmo Brown, Alinta Chidzey is aspiring actress Kathy Seldon, and Christie Whelan-Browne is Lockwood’s leading lady, Lina Lamont.
Gary Young directs this stylish new production with soaring choreography from Kelley Abbey and Melbourne’s favourite conductor, John Foreman is musical director. Singin’ in the Rain showers you with everything you could ever want in a musical!
