THERE will be rain inside the theatre, as well as outside, when The Rattonians tackle Singin in the Rain at the Congress Theatre from July 18-28.

The show started life as the hugely successful 1952 American comedy musical film starring Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds.

A wonderful comic depiction of Hollywood, and its transition from silent films to ‘talkies’, the show is full of great music and dancing including, Good Morning, Make ‘em Laugh, Moses Supposes and the legendary Singin’ in the Rain.

Alex Adams plays the role of Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly), with Dan Garnham as Cosmo Brown and Aimee Dyer is Cathy Selden, the three tapping up a storm in the fabulous routine Good Morning.

Other principal roles are played by Emily Davies as Lina Lamont, the beautiful actress with the dreadful voice, David Morley as RF, the boss of the movie studio, Gareth Brighton, the movie director, with other supporting roles by Melanie Adams, Damon Willer, Nicky Brook, and Jonathan Stevens.

The show is directed by Mark Adams with, choreographer Jan Lynton and musical director Carl Greenwood.

There are evening performances of the show at 7.45pm, with matinees at 2.30pm on July 21, 24 and 28. Tickets cost from £12.50-£15, call 412000.
