Tickets Now On Sale For Uk Tour As Classic Hit Musical Singin’ in the Rain Completes West End Run At The Palace Theatre

The West End production of SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN will have its final performance at the Palace Theatre on Saturday 8 June 2013 ahead of an extensive UK tour. The production which will open at Manchester’s Opera House on Wednesday 13 November and move to Cardiff’s Wales Millennium Centre for a Christmas and New Year season. Full details of the tour, including casting, will be announced shortly.

Rebecca Quigley, Producer and Managing Director, Stage Entertainment UK, said: “The first time I saw Singin’ in the Rain at Chichester I knew we had to bring the show to the West End and, eventually, beyond. We’ve had a wonderful run at the Palace Theatre and everyone at Stage Entertainment is so proud to have been part of making it a hit there. I’d like to thank everybody at the theatre and every single member of the Singin’ family who’ve made the show the success it is – and of course the hundreds of thousands of smiling audience members who’ve been part of the experience. We’re thrilled that the show will now set off around the country to delight and, in the case of some sections of the stalls, soak many more people to come!”

Jonathan Church’s production of Singin’ in the Rain was acclaimed by audiences and critics alike when it opened in the West End in February last year after an extended, sold out run at the Chichester Festival Theatre. The production, which uses half a mile of flexible pipe work, a 10 tonne water tank housed in the orchestra pit and a water system that creates a downpour from above and flooding from below the stage, ‘raining’ (and recycling) over 12,000 litres of downpour per performance, is produced in the West End by Stage Entertainment UK and Chichester Festival Theatre.

Don Lockwood is a silent movies star with everything he could want – fame, adulation and even 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.

In the West End Adam Cooper continues to lead the company as Don Lockwood. He is joined by Louise Bowden as Kathy Selden and Stephane Annelli as Cosmo Brown who complete the iconic trio made famous by Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O’Conner in 1952 MGM musical film. Jennifer Ellison stars as silent movie screen siren and owner of a voice never meant for the ‘talkies’, Lina Lamont. The principal cast also features Sandra Dickinson as Dora Bailey and Miss Dinsmore and Peter Forbes as RF Simpson.

The cast also features Mark Hadfield, David Lucas and Frankie Jenna with Karen Aspinall, Emma Caffrey, Matthew Croke, Brendan Cull, Adam Denman, Kelly Ewins-Prouse, Charlene Ford, Olivia Fines, Tim Hodges, Nia Jermin, Peter Le Brun, Matthew Malthouse, Adam Margilewski, Oliver Metzler, Gillian Parkhouse, Joseph Prouse, Charlotte Scott, Zara Warren and Nancy Wei George.

The stage production of Singin’ in the Rain is based on the classic Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film and produced by arrangement with Maurice Rosenfield, Lois F Rosenfield and Cindy Pritzker Inc. This production is by special arrangement with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures, Inc. Music Published by EMI.
