Singin In The Rain (musical theatre)

The big spring musical for the Congress Theatre this year is to be Singin In The Rain, The professional show will star stage and screen leading man Maxwell Caulfield as studio boss R.F. Simpson, Coronation Street favourite Vicky Binns as starlet Lina Lamont, James Leece as Don Lockwood, and Amy Ellen Richardson as Kathy Selden. They're all going to have to work hard to outdo the previous Rattonians performance though!

Don Lockwood is a silent movie star with everything he could want - fame, adulation and 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. Can Don and the uniquely voiced Lina make the transition and will chorus girl Kathy Selden fulfil her dream of stardom and capture Don’s heart along the way?

Thu and Sat matinees, 14:30.
