A classic musical all about the golden age of cinema will be coming to an outdoor theatre starting next week.
Kilworth House Theatre is to stage the musical Singin’ in the Rain and is based on the movie of the same name from 1952 and starring Gene Kelly.
Performances of the show run from Wednesday, June 3, to Sunday, July 19.
The show is set in Hollywood in the 1920s, when the silver screen found its voice and left silent movies – and some of its stars – behind.
It is packed full of charm, romance, comedy and tinseltown glamour.
This spectacular show 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.
This light-hearted spoof of frantic Hollywood – as the advent of sound changes all the movie making rules and Monumental Studios prepares its romantic epic ‘The Duelling Cavalier” – includes some of the best-loved comedy routines, dance numbers and love ballads ever written. Singin’ In the Rain is quite simply 24 carat classic entertainment.
It is one the world’s best loved movies and Laurence Olivier Award Winner for Best Musical Revival in 2001,
Singin’ In The Rain features all the songs from the glorious MGM score including Good Morning, Make ’em Laugh, You Stepped Out Of A Dream, You Are My Lucky Sta’ and the showstopping Singin’ in the Rain.
Among the cast for the show at Kilworth House Theatre are Graham MacDuff as Don Lockwood and Jenny Gayner as Lina Lamont.
Kathy Selden will be played by Carolyn Maitland and Adam Margilewski portrays Cosmo Brown.
Tickets for the show cost between £30 and £38, depending on the date and time of the performance.
Many of the shows are already sold out and people are being asked to book tickets in advance and quickly to guarantee seeing the show.
